A room completely quiet except for the soft sound of charcoal on the page–music to my ears.
Students concentrating, looking, and learning to see.
Fingers black–chins and foreheads too.
All in a day’s work.

The book was created as an end of the year assignment by William Longyear. I was interested not only in design but also in the printing of it. Thus I thought it was a good idea to explain the various methods of reproduction. The book was well received and helped me graduate.

For being 62 years old, the book remains in very good condition. Please handle with care.

Rachael Krinsky’s husband, Herman Krinsky, taught at Pratt. He was a quadriplegic and used these markers to create overhead projector slides that he could use to teach his classes.  Rachel also gave his slide ruler and an honor society medal.
