Houghton Library: Printing Workshop

After a brief discussion of the history and technology of printing from moveable type, participants will set type and, using the iron handpress, print a keepsake to take with them.

Houghton is offering a set of presentations and workshops designed to introduce graduate students to the examination of books as physical objects. These classes will enhance understanding in any field of study as students learn to “read” a book for evidence of its production context, its cultural value, and the experience of its readers through time.  These classes can be taken separately, or as a set.
