This course approaches the book as a form of art. You will get an introduction to a fundamental set of materials, processes and concepts involved in making books by hand. Craft and concept are strengthened as you learn new and innovative structures each week. In-class demonstrations and examples help familiarize you with the processes and product of a variety of different book structures.

What will you learn in this course?

Each structure explores unique themes, materials and techniques, and includes: one-page book folds, accordion and concertina variations, as well as a variety of sewn book structure, some ordinary, others tantalizing and mind boggling.
