Learning on a Local Letterpress

Last Friday, students in the Books and Zines class visited with Gardner resident Tracie Pouliot to learn about her letterpress and book binding studio. Ms. Pouliot creates handcrafted books that share firsthand accounts of people who made their living in the furniture industry and honor the history of the “chair city” and the surrounding communities affected by deindustrialization.
