- imitate type design and type casting using a hand mould
- assemble moveable type using a composing stick
- ink and print a book cover on a letterpress
- fold and bind a quarto booklet to take home
Special guest Kevin M. O'Sullivan, Curator of Rare Books and Manuscripts at Texas A&M Cushing Memorial Library, will be in attendance.
