The Photo Book
This week-long workshop is designed for photographers and artists with an existing body of work that they want to fashion into a cohesive book. The course is divided into two parts: editing the sequence of the work and designing the book itself, and then producing a unique, hand-printed, hand-bound maquette. Special attention is paid to individual design elements, printing quality, and binding techniques. Students also engage in lectures and discussion on the history of photographic books.
