After your individual bookmark has been made your set lines will be saved to be used in the next issue of our Ephemeral Newspaper (with your permission, of course!) coming out this Fall. Our Ephemeral Newspaper is an artist paper that is hand set and printed on one of our Vandercook Letterpresses from the 1940s.

We will also have demos from local artists, tours, and our shop open for any back-to-school gifts you may want to give a booklover in your life.

This is a free event and we look forward to seeing you there!
