The City of Palo Alto closed Emerson Street to automobile traffic, leaving room for music, bookbinding, hand letterpress operations, an author signing, and calligraphy demonstrations in front of Bell’s on October 8th. Over 700 people attended, enjoying birthday cake and a chance to pull the presses. Here’s a rousing cheer for all the wonderful folks who came to celebrate with us, and the artisans who made it possible! And a special thanks to the bibliophiles who found rare volumes that day to add to their collections… Many thanks for all your support throughout the eight decades during which it has been an honor to share our love of books with you!
We’ll be posting photos soon- check back to see yourself here.
