Wisconsin Book Bindery

Wisconsin Book Bindery: The History [and Future] of Books in Milwaukee
Saturday (9/22) at 12 pm (SOLD OUT) and 2 pm (1 ticket available)
Ticket Required ($10)
Duration: 1.5 hours
Capacity: 15 per tour
Meet: 347 E. Ward Street

Wisconsin Book Bindery is Milwaukee’s oldest, family-owned, traditional binding center. Never evolving into the digital age, the bindery is still using historic machinery and techniques to craft books by hand as a one-woman operation. Join Zachary Lifton, Director of the Bindery Project, and Daniel Ehn, Founder of Hamlin Binding, for an interactive tour of the facility and discussion of its future. We will conclude across the street at Voyageur Book Shop with a special viewing of antique books from the owners’ private collections, a selection of inspirational imagery provided by the Rare Books Department at Milwaukee Public Library, and a short, optional workshop for those that’d like to try their hand at simple binding themselves!
