Learn about the materials and processes of printing over six centuries in a talk on Saturday, March 25 at 2:00pm at the Geneva History Museum, 543 S. Main Street, Geneva. The program is presented by the Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes in association with Historic Geneva. It is free and open to the public. This program will also be presented virtually through Zoom.

The program is entitled “Riches from Rags: The Materials and Processes of Printing, 1450-1950.” In this talk, Seth Gottlieb will explore the materials and processes used by printers from the 15th through 20th centuries to produce books, including how paper was made, how text and illustrations were printed, and how books were assembled into a final product. He will discuss techniques for identifying different printing processes.

Seth Gottlieb is a printing historian and special collections librarian, currently based in Central New York. He invites members of the audience to bring books from their libraries to discuss during the question and answer session.
