Hot off the (Scripps College) Press
Professor Kitty Maryatt knows a thing or two about books.
Since 1986, Maryatt has run the Scripps College Press from a back room of Lang. Hired to rescue a dying component of the Scripps experience, Maryatt was tasked with somehow getting enough funds to save the press. Already there existed a class in which students were to learn how to make their own books, producing enough copies for themselves and a few friends. However, this course offered no formal instruction in metal typesetting, nor in other important components of printing. Frustrated by the fruitlessness of a class in which each student made only about ten copies of his or her individual book, Maryatt decided to redesign the curriculum.
