Introduction to Printing 1
Wednesday, January 17: Intro to Printing 1, Fundamentals of Type-Setting
This course is open to absolute beginners. You need not be sure what “letterpress” means to join this class. It covers the basic parts of type, tools used in setting type, and techniques that printers use to make it as effortless as possible.
Come with a short quotation in mind, and we’ll set it, maybe along with some ornaments. Book Arts Collaborative staff will set it in a chase for you and show you how it looks printed. You’ll get to take home a copy of your quotation, emblazoned upon a placard, coaster, bookmark, or etc.
Learn the secrets of type-setters who do not, in fact, have to read “upside down and backwards.”
