Student Project

Bookbinding Sophomores

November 24, 2011
Helen Armstrong

Last week, Samantha Perkins and Helen Armstrong combined their courses for the day to introduce the basics of binding and then enjoy a Thanksgiving student potluck. The workshop prepared students for a Typography assignment in which each designed and produced a custom edition of a public domain text downloaded from Project Gutenberg. The assignment explores the future of printed books as precious artifacts rather then mass produced texts.
