Wells College Press: A Retrospective

September 9, 2013

The Book Arts Center has produced a variety of books over the years. The Victor Hammer Fellows, the Bixlers in Skaneateles, the Directory, Nancy Gil, and many helping hands at Wells create letterpress printed and handbound books in limited editions.

Here are some images of our past books. Thank you to Maud Sipe, one of our new work-study students for making the photo shoot possible!

Soon we will be calling for writers to submit their work for our next book, to be produced next spring!
