This series of traditionally printed and bound books was designed, handset, and relief printed according to the traditional techniques of the first centuries of print culture. The students of ENG 345I “Creating Book Culture” created this series as a reflection on the technologies and structures that preserve information before the rise of digital technologies of design and replication. The pages of these books reflect the students’ semester-long study of the history of the book and of the technical processes required to create and preserve them.
