Learn Bookbinding in the New Bookbinding Class at Academy

The next bookbinding class at Academy Book Bindery will start: WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 25, 1976 AT 7:3o P.M.

The first two of four weekly lessons will be given in our Ann Arbor shop at 209 South State Street.

The last two lessons and any extra or advanced lessons will be given at the Dexter shop, because they require equipment not available in the Ann Arbor shop.

Individuals on our class waiting list will get first priority for admission to the class which is limited to seven. There will be room for people who have not contacted us before.

The fee is $35.00 prepaid to cover the four 3 hour lessons. This fee pays the cost of instruction as well as the materials used. Students should bring their own books to work on. Such books should consist of folded sewn signatures.

By the end of the four classes, students should have the satisfaction of seeing their own rebound and titled books, all the work accomplished by themselves Previous classes have been profitably enjoyed by many students from the Ann Arbor-Detroit area.
