Using movable type and hand-operated printing presses, students design and print several projects. Through discussion and critique, students learn basic elements of design and typography, and how to integrate other printing processes into letterpress work. At the end of the semester, each student walks away with a class portfolio. The class includes a brief introduction to the history of the book, using examples from the rare book collection.
