Come celebrate the 100th birthday of our Chandler & Price press! This antique platin letterpress was manufactured by Harrison T. Chandler and William H. Price one hundred years ago, in 1913. The Chandler & Price company, founded in 1881 in Cleveland, Ohio, manufactured very popular presses that were used in the printing industry through the mid-20th century. Let’s have a birthday party for ours! Join us for letterpress demonstrations, printing, bookbinding, and papermaking activities for kids, door prizes, refreshments, and cake! We also have a commemorative limited edition letterpress poster to celebrate the day, available for a donation to the KBAC Youth Scholarship fund. This is a free event. Families with children are encouraged to join the fun, and learn more about books.
