Bookbinding for Artist's Books
This course focuses on providing beginning students with an introduction to the traditional craft of bookbinding
and how it can be used as a jumping off point for making artist’s books. Examples of a wide variety of artist’s
books will be shown as well as information on collections, online sources, and journals that specialize in the book
arts. Both traditional and contemporary book structures will be taught including pamphlets, accordion books,
Japanese stab bindings, tunnel books and small albums. This class will emphasize methods that require little or no
special equipment and will concentrate on non-adhesive binding methods.
