RPI freshmen visit Troy, and The Troy Book Makers

Yesterday, incoming RPI freshmen were busy touring downtown Troy, and several groups stopped by to see how we make books. Our last group had a few hams, so we got them to pose making hand shadows. Hand shadows? Well, they’re from our historic reprint of Henry Bursill’s 1859 book, Hand Shadows to be Thrown upon the Wall.
