Newsletter Digest from The San Diego Book Arts Group ---  Information in =
and around San Diego for the bookish community!=20

SDBA Workshop: JACOB'S LADDER AND JAPANESE SCREEN HINGES WITH EMILY =
MARTIN!


A two day workshop introducing the basic and related techniques of these =
two structures. It's a toy, it's a book, it's the Jacob's ladder! This =
2,000 year old Chinese toy has many wonderful applications for =
contemporary artist bookmakers. The book can be read straight through =
like any accordion book or hold one end and flip the ladder sections to =
reveal the hidden scenes. Construction and operation of the Jacob's =
ladder will be fully explained.=20

The Japanese screen hinge is an equally versatile device. This hinge =
allows for full 360 degree rotation, books can be read through and then =
reversed and read through again. The hinge is very strong and very light =
and allows your accordion books to take on more sculptural arrangements. =
Students will assemble models of each structure and make their own =
individual examples using their own drawings, photographs, rubber =
stamps, collages etc.

Emily Martin, proprietor of the Naughty Dog Press, has been making =
artist's books since 1978. She received an M.F.A. in painting from the =
University of Iowa in 1979. She produces limited edition sculptural =
and/or moveable books using images and/or text in a variety of media. =
Her books are exhibited and included in major museum collections =
internationally, including the Museum of Modern Art, NYC; the Tate =
Gallery, London; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. She =
teaches book arts classes at the University of Iowa Center for the Book =
and in workshops around the country.=20
