Do you love the smell of old books? Are you interested in serifs and paper pulp? Apply to the Pine Tree Scholars Program!
The Pine Tree Scholars program introduces Columbia and Barnard graduate and undergraduate students to the crafts associated with fine book production, such as typography, letterpress printing, bookbinding, and papermaking, as well as to the rare and art book trades.
This program is open to students in all departments and programs. All costs of instruction and ticket fees and lunches will be covered by Columbia and Barnard through the generosity of the Pine Tree Foundation.
