Book and Letter Making Lab: Day Two - Form & Content: Book Writing & Bookbinding

Thursday, January 13, 2022 at 1:00pm to 4:00pm

Virtual Event

Book and Letter Making Lab is a three-day interactive exploration of books and correspondence, including talks, workshops, and making in MIT’s Wunsch Conservation Lab.

On Day Two, we’ll host an author talk with Kaija Langley. Mattie Clear and Alex McGee will talk about journals and SciFi zines from MIT’s collections. At the same time, Martha Edgerton and other trained bookbinders will offer tips and tricks on many aspects of bookmaking, from using a plough to decorating leather with a hedgehog-unicorn finishing tool.

Anyone wishing to attend all three sessions must register for each session separately.
