Earth Day Extravaganza!

April 23rd, 2011 11:00 PM

Join us as we celebrate our sixth annual Earth Day festivities with fun, free, and sustainable printing and book arts activities for the whole family!

This year's Earth Day will again include the celebrated “squid printing” activity with two big, beautiful Pacific Humboldt squid donated from the Gulf of the Farallones National Marine Sanctuary. We’ll be inking them up and laying them out on paper to create fascinating one-of-a- kind imprints of their bodies. We will also be teaching a simple and sustainable book binding method to make your own journals, as well as vegetable carving to make uniquely printed greeting cards.

Local book arts vendors will be on hand with their wares, and the Little Green Cyclo food truck will be on-site all day with delectable Vietnamese food!

Confirmed vendors include:

  • Another Room Books
  • Blockhead Press
  • Nicole Catalfamo
  • Dandy Lion Press
  • Erin Fong
  • Graphic Arts Workshop
  • Inkworks
  • Maiden Hand Press
