About the Workshop:

This in-person class at Center for Book Arts is taught by instructor Roni Gross.

In this advanced letterpress workshop, participants will design and print an edition of chapbooks using text. Each student will provide a brief text (either their own or another writer’s) and we will design and edition the book. At the end of the class there will be a reading and an opportunity to show the book. The text will be handset in metal type with additional ornamentation. A great opportunity for experienced letterpress printers to begin to edition books on the press!


Required Materials:

  • Closed-toed shoes
  • Pencil and paper for taking notes
  • Provide a text that you would like to use as material for the book. 

All other materials will be provided by Center for Book Arts at no additional cost.
