Creating Chapbooks

Many thanks to Arielle Hessler of the SBU Libraries Preservation Department for her workshop on How to Make a Chapbook held at the Southampton campus library on September 27th. Chapbooks are the literary DIY project of choice and the results, following Arielle’s detailed instructions, can be exquisite. Judging from the turnout of our MFA students, we should expect to see a burst of creativity soon.


Thanks also to F. Jason Torre, head of the department, for setting up the event. Not sure what a Preservation Department does? Check out their home page to learn more. And look for Jason and Arielle to return  in the spring for…tiny books!
