The letterpress equipment in the Dawson Printshop will be used to print unique title pages or decorative covers for the final project, which will be a hard cover book suitable as a diary or studio journal. Tuition includes paper and binding materials for four in-class projects, (notebook, concertina binding, Coptic binding and hardcover journal). Bring scissors, ruler, and pencil to the first class.
