LILRC Presentation from April 25, 2016 at Farmingdale Public Library
Introductory workshop with general information on preservation principles, tools, and best practice, as well as an introduction to many preservation techniques.
A chapbook is a small collection of poetry, generally no more than 40 pages, that often centers on a specific theme. Sold by peddlers in 19th century Europe, these books were illustrated with crude woodcuts, which sometimes bore no relation to the text. A chapbook is typically saddle-stitched (like a pamphlet or magazine) and usually printed on a single sheet of folded paper. In this workshop, attendees learned how to create their own.
