The Craft of the Book: Saturday the 25th, 2:00pm.
It might be summer, but at the Library class is in session--craft of the book class, that is. If you would like to learn more about hand-press era bookmaking, come to the Library Saturday afternoon for an illustrated talk on the craftsmanship of paper making, printing, and bookbinding.
And I'll have some books from the collection to share too. It's a free class, and you don't need to register. And attendees get to take home a handy guide to the subject (pictured above, atop a great wood type specimen book that I'll have to share too!). This guide doubles as a model for a quick and easy bookmaking structure that you can make at home anytime!
Saturday, July 25th, 2:00 to 3:00pm (classroom will open at 1:45pm)
New York Public Library Celeste Bartos Education Center
First Floor, South Court Classrooms
Stephen A. Schwarzman Building
Fifth Avenue & 42nd Street
One last note: I'll teach this class once more this summer (at 2:00pm on August 22nd), so you can come then if you are interested but can't make it this weekend.
