Turn your photographs into a page-turner in this week-long workshop designed for photographers and artists with a body of work 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.

Media & Techniques:

We use Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and InDesign to edit images and layout our books.


The week consists of a combination of lectures, discussions and demonstrations as well as in-studio time to create a unique final book using one of two different binding methods.
