Wells College, established in 1868 by Henry Wells, founder of Wells Fargo &
American Express, is a four-year college for women offering a complete
liberal arts curriculum. The college is located on a 360-acre campus on the
eastern shore of Cayuga Lake in New York's beautiful Finger Lakes region.

The Book Arts Center consists of the Wells College Press & the Class of '32
Bindery. Victor Hammer, a legendary practitioner of painting, sculpture,
architecture & printing, established the Wells College Press in 1941. His
most important work in printing and type design was done during his time at
Wells. The Class of '32 Bindery was a generous gift of the Class of '32 and
operates as a fully equipped classroom for binding.

The Hammer Fellow will teach an introductory course in letterpress printing
each semester and design & print projects for the college. The Fellow will
also assist in organizing an upcoming symposium.  The Hammer Fellowship
includes an internship at the Press & Letterfoundry of Michael & Winifred
Bixler in Skaneateles, New York. The Fellow is also expected to produce a
portfolio of new work of his or her own, copies of which will be included in
the Center's permanent collection.
