I remember wandering through Colonial Williamsburg as a kid — the smell of sulfur at the blacksmith shop and the food at the various taverns. I don’t particularly recall visiting the printer and bookbinder shops, but I’ve still learned a great deal from them! Colonial Williamsburg published the Williamsburg Craft Series — short pamphlet-sized tracts that provide a broad overview of the different crafts and trades of colonial America. When I started researching bookbinding, Clement’s volume provided an excellent introduction, and it is available in full at HathiTrust.
