The Pine Tree Scholars program introduces Barnard and Columbia students to the crafts associated with fine book production, such as typography, letterpress printing, bookbinding, and papermaking, as well as to the rare and art book trades. Most of these sessions include a hands-on component but no prior experience is necessary. All mandatory sessions will take place on Friday afternoons; two optional sessions take place other times.
