826 Valencia’s Bookmaking Seminar Approaches


That uneasiness even tech-savvy readers feel about e-books—what about the smell of binding glue? the sound of turning pages?—demonstrates how even if we accept digital readers, we still love the heft and texture of an old-fashioned paper book.

If you’re interested in creating that heft and feel yourself, you’ll find no better event than the Night Writer Society’s seminar on bookmaking, this Friday at 7:30 in San Francisco.

The evening will include talks from design and bookmaking professionals Eli Horowitz and Rhiannon Alpers, as well as a Q&A session. All proceeds will go to 826 Valencia, so buy your tickets now!
