Jamie, Aziz, Katherine and our youngest binder, Lila, at 9-years old, all completed a multi-signature binding, with hardcover boards and book cloth.

In the Letterpress workshop, Jamie, Joyce and Viv each hand set metal type and printed a set of personal note cards.  They also each created a poetry broadside edition.  Wonderful work!
