October First Saturday @ Frederick Book Arts Center

It’s almost time to print the next issue of Frederick’s only artist newspaper – The Ephemeral! Join us for October First Saturday and write a short message to a friend or loved one, your favorite book quote, what you are thankful to have in Frederick, you name it (family friendly)! We will teach you how to set type and you will be able to pull your letters directly from our antique type trays.

Our Ephemeral Newspaper is an artist paper that is hand set and printed on one of our Vandercook Letterpresses from the 1940s. We will print over 700 copies of the Ephemeral and distribute them to businesses throughout Frederick, and of course you will be able to come back to FBAC once they are printed and pick up a copy or two for yourself for free!
We will also have demos from local artists, tours, and our shop will be open for any gifts you may want to give a booklover in your life.

This is a free event!
