Come by Kresge Library to pick up a card! I handset this design and printed it at the Book Arts Workshop (with assistance from Sarah Smith and Lisa Ladd).
Pictures from today’s Book Arts event! Thanks for coming out and printing a poster! Hope you enjoyed the experience. We had over 25 people stop by and some people made extra for their friends and colleagues.
Huge thanks to Sarah Smith for designing the background, hand setting the type for the question, and setting up everything to make the event such a success! I hand set the pi symbol I designed on Wednesday afternoon for today’s printing. Can you spot my error?
I’m looking forward to our next Kresge x Book Arts event: Pi Day!
I’m going to work it into a poster in our Book Arts Workshop. Look out for a Halloween Book Arts event!

Thanks to Sarah Smith, who was such a good sport about putting together the heart-shaped one (the back left card) at the last minute. I had set the letters right to left the first time and she fixed it in no time.
The original sketch for the front card looked like this:
She took the idea and made it so awesome! We saw about 12 people come through the workshop and print off a bunch of cards. We hope more people will be interested in participating in the Book Arts program and print some more cards!
And we’re looking for ideas for the next science-themed letterpress workshop!
