The printing press dramatically changed how books were produced, but not much has changed since then in terms of how books are bound.
Children can learn about the process in a bookbinding workshop on Saturday, July 8, from 11 to 12:30, at the Wilton Historical Society, 224 Danbury Road. During the workshop children will make a small book bound with an easy stitch using linen or flax to bind. The book will be composed of recipes that have been used in the Colonial Cookery and Customs for Kids workshops at the society
This program is for children 6 to 12 years old. The fee is $10 per child for members, maximum $25 per family; non-members, $15 per child, maximum $35 per family. Register at info@wiltonhistorical.org or call 203-762-7257
