Deep thoughts floating around, need to remember that grocery list? Write it down in your own notebook! Students in this workshop will print a small edition of covers on a cylinder proof press using lead type, wood type, and cuts from the SFCB collection. When the printing wraps up the instructor will teach simple notebook binding techniques to put everything together. Students will leave with completed notebooks and a few extra letterpress covers to assemble more notebooks at home. 

Materials to Bring: Optional: paper that could make a good notebook cover.
