      Announcing the Third Annual Summer Institute at the Wells Book Arts
      Center

      For its third annual summer institute, the Wells Book Arts Center is
      offering an extraordinary opportunity to learn from some of the
      nation's most important figures in the book arts. Intensive, hands-on
      courses in letterpress printing, bookbinding and lettering arts are
      taught by remarkable instructors in Wells' historic setting of lyric
      beauty. There will be three sessions for the summer of 2007.

      Session I: July 8–14 – An Introduction to Book Arts and Modern
      Publishing is a foray into book arts and modern publishing that in a
      single course offers workshops, tours, and lectures given by a lively
      and varied panel of experts including Mark Dimunation, Chief of the
      Rare Book and Special Collections Division, Library of Congress;
      Brenda Marsh, Vice President of Author Relations at Barnes & Noble;
      and David Kirk, author & illustrator of the popular Miss Spider
      children's book series.

      Session II, July 15–21, features three separate courses. Printer and
      book artist Macy Chadwick's Printing In Layers: Intuition, Innovation
      and Accident in the Artist's Book; fine binder & book designer Don
      Glaister's Putting the Art Back in the Craft; and lettering artist
      Suzanne Moore's Equilibrium: Creating Text & Image Balance in the
      Artist's Book.

      Session III, July 22–28, also features three separate courses. Printer
      and book artist Barbara Tetenbaum's Limited Edition Books:
      Experimental Image-making on the Vandercook; painter, printmaker and
      bookbinder Laura Wait's Artist's Books: More Than Paper, Wood and
      Leather; and font designer Leslie Cabarga's Creating Logos, Type and
      Lettering form Scratch.

      Students may select one course of the three offered in a session and
      all levels of experience, from beginners to experts, are welcome.
      Courses are limited to 8–12 participants who will enjoy well-equipped
      & air-conditioned studios on the Wells College campus, air-conditioned
      dorm rooms, and ample time to exchange ideas and enjoy camaraderie
