Lead Typesetting for Letterpress Printing Demonstration


Saturday April 1, 2023: 2:00pm to 4:00pm  Add to Calendar /   Add to Google Calendar


Downtown Library: Secret Lab

For Whom



Letterpress is the traditional process of printing by hand using moveable type. For this event Letterpress Lab staff will demonstrate how to lock up a small print job using lead type, composing sticks, quoins, furniture, leading, a chase and a galley tray! Want to learn what half those words mean, then make sure to drop by the Secret Lab. Can’t make it till later? Don’t worry, we’re repeating the demonstration twice, at 2pm and 3pm.    _Due to the presence of lead-based type, this program is intended for adults._
