What better way to celebrate the kick-off of BookFest than by creating a book from start to finish in this hands-on demo!? Participants will follow along step by step to create a blank book with a hand-printed cover, perfect as a sketchbook or journal.
Step A: Handprint a book cover on our printing press from the 1930s
Step B: Fold & collate your printed cover & inside pages (blank or lined, you choose!)
Step C: Bind together with our antique binding machine
Suitable for curious folks of all ages & skill levels–families welcome.
