Re: workshops for small press publishing)



Dear Friends in the  Book Arts, Poets, Writers,Illustrators:

Dreaming of creating your own editions of books to distribute and sell ????
Turn those dreams into reality !
PAT BALDWIN OF PEQUENO PRESS AND WATERLEAF MILL & BINDERY will present an
EDITION BOOK PRODUCTION WORKSHOP, JULY 6 - 9 at SALTWINDS YANKEE BARN in
Massachusetts.

 This will be a four day workshop for book artists/writers who
want to learn the entire process of edition production.  Using a problem-solving
mode, Pat guides you from original idea and sketches and  rough "dummy" to
 working dummy, templates, information sheet on the book and then on to
usual problems with book structure, text/author exchange, artist/illustrator
decisions,layout,  payment, copyright, distribution, etc. All of this will be
taught and actually experienced through debate, acting out, role playing and
most importantly....doing, in an atmosphere of REAL COLLABORATION
guided by an expert whose work has been included in books and exhibits too
numerous to list here. (Pat recently won highest honors  in the Miniature Book
 Society competition.)

Each person will come away with a small edition of the book of their
own idea,design and making.  Pat will also teach some of her ECCENTRIC BINDINGS,
including the Japanese Rechoso, and share her extensive book log through
slides and models.
A Letterpress demo is also in the works.

For more information, please send SASE to:
Saltwinds Yankee Barn Workshop
Box 52
Kingston,MA 02364

(I will be away a few weeks in February, so if you do not get your brochure
right away, never fear....it'll be on its way ASAP when I return. Save the
July dates. The first 12 people to send a $50 deposit will be the lucky
ones.)

Lilias
