We Love Paper: A Visit to Acorn Press

May 20, 2015 @ 6:15 PM - 11:00 PM

Think of your favourite book – ever wondered how it was made? SYP Oxford is going behind the scenes at Acorn Press to see the approval of proofs through to a finished book. 

Learn about printing terminology like signatures, hickeys, UV Varnish, offset printing, bleeds, binding styles, wood-free and matt paper and much more. Acorn Press are generously providing a range of drinks and snacks as they show us how paper and ink are turned into wonderful books, plus our own personalised booklet to take away. 

Join us on the 20th May and tour Acorn Press. Spaces are limited to 20 people so sign up now. 

There will be a bus to pick us up outside the Taylor Institution Library on St Giles. The bus will be there from 6.15pm and will be leaving at 6.30pm.

Free for members and £3 for non-members (to pay on the day).
