Launch | McGill Book Arts Printing Lab

Event

McLennan Library Building Rare Books and Special Collections, McLennan Library Building 4th floor, 3459 rue McTavish, Montreal, QC, H3A 0C9, CA

Join us as we celebrate the restoration of our Columbian printing press – believed to be the oldest hand press of its kind in North America – and launch the McGill Book Arts Printing Lab.

There will be a demonstration of letterpress printing and a light reception. 

Help us usher in a series of special programming for 2020 focused on Serious Play – using games for educational objectives. The series will feature workshops and demonstrations offered by the Book Arts Printing Lab, one of the most exciting initiatives on-the-go in the McGill Library. The Book Arts Printing Lab team is led by McGill Librarians Anna Dysert, Jennifer Garland, Ann Marie Holland, and Lauren Williams.

This event is open to all.

This event is now at full capacity.
