Breakfast Epiphany with Richard Rose
Don't miss our season's final Breakfast Epiphany with letterpress expert and educator Richard Rose. We are making this event extra special by offering the option of participating in an exclusive hands-on printing workshop or touring Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library immediately following the discussion. 

Here’s how the morning will unfold:

First, join us at the Woodland Street Café for a rousing conversation over breakfast as we explore regaining what’s lost in creation and building lasting connections through the art of letterpress. Our letterpress expert Richard Rose will bring along some fine and rare examples of the art of printmaking for us to experience up close. If you have printed items you covet, we’d love for you to share them as well.

After breakfast, we’ll split into two groups:

Group 1: 6 attendees who have registered for the letterpress workshop will take a tour of the College Press on York Street. Then, you’ll get to set type using Richard’s collection of antique letters while working together to print your very own commemorative poster with content inspired by the morning’s discussion. Paper for this workshop has been graciously donated by our friends at Mohawk Paper.

Group 2: the remaining attendees will explore the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, home to a rare 1454 Gutenberg Bible and Modern works collected from around the world.
