This has been a bustling summer for the American Bookbinders Museum. In addition to daily tours, and events such as the Yerba Buena Alliance’s Third Thursdays, this summer we’re hosting the Cartoon Art Museum’s Summer Bootcamp. The Bootcamp offers four 1-week classes for tweens and teens on various cartooning subjects: character creation, storytelling, zine creation, and board-game creation. It’s been energizing to watch the hard work and progress these students make over their one-week stay with us.
This summer we’re experimenting with renting the Folsom Street end of the museum for occasional meetings and presentations. “Activating” the space is creating a whole new audience for the museum, and the enthusiasm of these visitors has made things hum here.
To celebrate two rapidly growing members of our community, the ABM is now offering a Senior rate for our guests 65+, and a Youth rate for those 5-16 years of age. Kids under 5 are welcome for free.
We’ve also begun to offer our ABM-branded merchandise online through the website. Click the link above to see how you can add a little ABM to your life.
