Human Error in the History of Print


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Printer's Error tells stories from the history of print, which all sounds very dignified; after all, the printing press has recorded and spread some of the greatest achievements of humankind. But remember: humankind is also full of idiots. Our predecessors who lived hundreds of years ago are not so very different from us, and we can't help but laugh in recognition of our shared folly. This is the story of five books which demonstrate that the printed word is glorious, but it's also nuts -- because we are gloriously nuts.

Join us as we welcome author and bookseller Rebecca Romney to discuss the delightfully weird history of books! Talk begins at 5:30 with reception to follow.
