Print Shop

A bit later in the semester we will be visiting the Print Shop at the O’Neill Literary House. We will be thinking further about writing and books as technology, and the print shop is a great place to do that. I highly recommend anyone even remotely interested in printing and book-making consider the print shop class (see below). Or stop by and see what it looks like. I wish that I could fit the class into my schedule…
