Single Sheet Letterpress Book

There are many variations on the single-page folded book, aka the maze book. The structure taught in this workshop is intriguing because it appears to be a standard codex; but, when unfolded, it is revealed to be a single page, with a center cut. The content can be images, text, or a mixture of the two. Learn how to use a book dummy to arrive at the correct imposition of type and/or images. Work collaboratively to design a book while you practice typesetting and printing on the Vandercook proof press. The day will finish with folding the books and exchanging with fellow students. Everyone takes home 10 copies.

*This workshop will take place on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 9:30am-5:30pm.
