Located on the second floor of Mudd Library, the Letterpress Studio is accessible to students through an ExCo class, a winter-term group project, and opportunities for class visits. Here, Jacob Gilbert ’16, a student in the ExCo, drips various colored paints into a tray in a process called paper marbling. The paints, he explains, float to the surface of the liquid, allowing him to carefully manipulate the colors using a comb or other tools to create a marbled pattern. See “Learning through the Letterpress” for more information on the Letterpress Studio.
