This class is aimed at artists who have completed a body of work and are ready to create a handmade book to better share their images. The course examines the importance of the book media in the storytelling process. Students learn editing, sequencing and printing; discuss writing and book design as well as explore and practice two different techniques of book making: concertina and perfect binding. Each student comes to class with their project as distinct digital images and leaves with a beautifully-printed book.


Printing, cutting and scoring, proper adhesive techniques, basic binding methods along with understanding sequencing and order in the book format
