Add To Cart

Learn the basics of letterpress printing and bookbinding using 19th century equipment. We'll learn how to set type, print on a Chandler & Price printing press, and then bind a book using a pamphlet stitch. You will come away with your very own blank notebook and a deeper understanding of the book as a physical object.
