Presented by The Antiques Club of the Finger Lakes in association with Historic Geneva. The meeting is free and open to club members and the general public. This program will also be presented virtually through Zoom.

Seth Gottlieb will explore the materials and processes used by printers from the 15th through 20th centuries to produce books, including how paper was made, how text and illustrations were printed, and how books were assembled into a final product.
