When Week 6, 8 November 2017, 4.30-6.30pm
Where Clephan Building 0.31
Who Paul Brown (De Montfort University)
What "Hands-On Letter-Press Printing, Part One". To enable graduate students to get a feel for how books were made in the hand-press era (from the 15th century to the 20th), this is the first of two sessions in which students will set movable type using the method invented by Johannes Gutenberg, impose their type into pages, and then print from it using the CTS's hand-operated Albion printing press. By the end of this session, you will be experienced in the art of 'compositing': the setting of type for a literary-historical text by hand.
