BOOK STRUCTURES=20


BOOK STRUCTURES, taught by TIMOTHY C. ELY, is intended for Graphic
Designers,
Printmakers and Photographers=97any artist generating forms which
can be
directed toward the handmade book.

In the beginning, primary structures will be demonstrated, then
each
participant will build one. These will include the Kelm wire edge
binding, the
thermo-bond non-sewn case and the basic English style case.
These structures
wholly support the ideas of the visual book. As the
sessions evolve,
refinements will be added, along with additional book and
box structures.
Included will be invaluable information on adhesives,
pigments, gilding,
leather bookbinding, paper surface design, metal working
and much more. This
collection of information and techniques and the
interplay between them is
largely unavailable anywhere else.

BOOK STRUCTURES is an ongoing class with most students continuing from term
to
term. Because the class revolves around much individual attention and
because
each student eventually progresses to self-initiated projects,
newcomers are
welcome in any class as space allows. Each group is limited
to six people.=20

Fee: $300 per student. Basic materials for class projects are included,
as
well as the use of studio tools and equipment. Students bring special
papers
if desired and personal tools are welcome.=20

Timothy C. Ely began making books as early as 1957. An interest in Art,
UFO
images, alchemy, science, comic books and odd religious arcana lead him
from
painting and design into bookbinding.  An NEA grant in 1981 took him
to Japan
and Europe for training in the traditional methods of book
fabrication. He has
collaborated with ethno-botanist Terence McKenna on
Synesthesia, a limited
edition book published in 1992 by Granary Books in
New York.  In 1994 he was
awarded an NEA Western States Arts Federation
Grant. His first trade book, The
Flight into Egypt, was published in 1995
by Chronicle Books of San Francisco.
His one-of-a-kind books are in public
and private collections worldwide.=20
