Finishing the Book History

Today we finished binding all our printings. We each got about four copies of "An Account of the Death of Thomas Hitchens," two of John Smith's "On Composing," and two on "A Sermon on the Death of George the II." Then we took a quiz, cleaned a lot, played Quadrats, and had pizza.

Quadrats, incidentally, is a betting game that printers used to play using quads. Quads are little rectangles which form the spaces between words. Bigger quads are used to fill out the lines when sentences end. You roll and toss five of them like dice, then you count which ones end notch side up. Everyone tosses three times and the highest roller wins.

It is actually ridiculously entertaining.
