This hands-on activity will begin with short introductory examples exploring how physical books can help us unlock information about their creators, authors, and owners, followed by a hands-on activity led by local bookbinder, Alexandra Marsden. Participants will learn how to bind and decorate a book in a way that showcases their own tastes and interests. This event is aimed at audiences with an appreciation of books and reading. All materials will be provided.
