Description: The course will begin by looking at how the printing of books has evolved during the past 500 years. Then we will work our way through the entire book production process from design into type and then through the manufacturing processes – as well as the business practices - of making books. Towards the end of the course we may also have time to discuss new methods of distributing e-books and print-on-demand. Students will be responsible for the material covered by guests during the semester.
