On Friday May 4, we held the launch party for the Midwest Book & Manuscript Studies program and the new Soybean Press. Attendees were able to print their own bookmarks on a letterpress proof press. There were door prizes, refreshments, and a large crowd eager to hear about these new initiatives sponsored by the Rare Book & Manuscript Library, Graduate School of Library and Information Science, Art and Design, The University Press, and the Facilities & Services Printing Department.
