Student calls NYPD 'way out of line'
Down in the Baker basement, there is a world where letters have lives.
Collectively, the Book Arts Studios " the Letter Press Studio, where printing is done and the Open Bindery, where books are made " are preserving the historical life of bookmaking.
"If you're going to understand the history of books, if you're going to really appreciate the beauty of fine books, you need to learn how to print books yourself," Phil Cronenwett, the Rauner Special Collections Librarian in charge of the Book Arts budget, said.
The Letter Press Studio is an icy blue room with a border of woodcuts stained blue, black, red or green, with the residue of continued inking lining the studio underneath high windows facing up into the tracery of winter branches.
There are miniature drawers of engravings and fonts with pigeon-holed compartments used for each specifc letter and mark of punctuation.
The oiled machinery blackly shines, waiting for the turn of a wheel or the shift of a lever to move into the exactitude necessary for printing.
The Book Arts Studios "give students a window into how printing used to be done," student user William Raynolds '04 said.
It is also a way to produce a frameable excerpt of poetry or prose.
"It's a very holistic approach to creative writing," Cronenwatt said.
Printing "gives you this entrance to the poem when you take these words one by one," Hamlin said.
The Letter Press and its sister studio, the Open Bindery, are the Book Arts facilities at Dartmouth College.

It was reinstated in 1989 with the help of concerned community members Edward Lathem '51, Mark Landsbery and Roderick "Rocky" Stinehour, 20 years later, in the studio's original room.
Unfortunately, printing classes are no longer offered at Dartmouth because the craft of printing "doesn't fall within one department," Louise Hamlin, the advisor to the Letter Press Studio, said.
William Raynolds '04 used the Letter Press Studio for a first-year summer research project on the Koran and moveable type.
