Book Arts/Letterpress classes in August in NYC

I first met the people at Studio-On-The-Square at the Small Press Fair organized by the Center for Independent Publishing (NYC), where I had a chance to see the beautiful work they do with artist’s books at their in-house INTIMA PRESS, and learned that they offer workshops for artists.  Those of you interested in creating small or limited edition books would be wise to learn some of the techniques offered.
From an e-blast this morning, edited to suggest classes I believe my readers would enjoy:
