Celebrating books with Derby Book Festival!
Have fun creating your own bookplates in this evening session at our studio.
Set a small piece of text combined with ornaments from our collection to create your very own bookplates. During the session, you will get to grips with the traditional technique of letterpress using an Adana tabletop press and metal type.
You will be guided in composition techniques by our printer Chris, and print the final design onto high quality paper. Expect to take up to 15-25 bookplates away with you.
