Get to know the basics of letterpress printing and hand typesetting to print your own books and broadsides. Learn to set hot lead and wood type, print large broadsides and small books, and to use vintage printing presses. Add images with carved linoleum blocks, then finish the week by binding the small prints together into a book. All levels welcome.
