Bruce McKenzie Booksellers in Palmerston North will celebrate NZ Bookshop Day with an all-day printing demonstration by printmaker Heather Partel. Heather will handset and print colourful postcards and bookmarks to give away during the day. She will use two Adana Table Top Presses kindly loaned by John Brebner of Homeprint.

Using classic handset fonts, the cards will celebrate New Zealand authors in collages of names and quotations. Heather will be visible from the street and will talk to customers and book-lovers about the quality and uniqueness of old fashioned print and printing processes. A folk music group and a classical trio will provide live music throughout the day.

The staff at BMB feel that NZ Bookshop Day is all about the physical book, and by reminding people where it all began, with the printing press, they will be re-enforcing the wonderful presence and future of the real book.
