Abstract

Students using the Dartmouth College Book Arts Workshop have access to two Vandercook electric presses, two iron hand presses, one treadle press, and a wide variety of metal and wooden type (Bank Script to 4-line Round Gothic), including characters for French, German, Greek, Hebrew and Spanish typesetting. There is also a stock of papers, book-binding tools, and guillotines to assist the book-making process. The Ray Nash Book Collection is nearby to provide inspiration. Here binding is represented by Sarah Smith’s work: a polka-dotted quarter-bound book.
