Family Book Lab in Berkeley

I finally caught up with Coriander (a.k.a. Cory) Reisbord, my longtime colleague in the book arts world (and at California College of the Arts). She told me that she had the opportunity to teach at Cazadero Performing Arts Family Camp this summer, a place I know in its incarnation as Cazadero Music Camp. I visited Cory at her year-and-a-half-old studio storefront in Berkeley, CA called Family Book Lab. It's a sweet little space a few doors down from the city's beloved toy store Mr. Mopp's. She teaches an adult letterpress class there as well as hosting project-oriented children's birthday parties. Come on in!

She was just holding the onion skin paper up to the light to show me.

Doing book repair work at her desk. Wonderful book cloth rack!

View looking out to the street.

Type cabinet, slug cutter, knives, inks.

Letterpress printed calendar and tools.

And the letterpress with a linoleum block locked up.

If you live in the area and want to take a class, contact her!
