JOAN LYONS, July 1-July 5
ARTISTS' BOOKS: NARRATIVE / TEXT AND IMAGE

We are hungry for stories—telling them, viewing them, reading them. 
Artists' books, functioning as both personal and public site, are based on 
narratives that weave text and image within a physical structure to tell a 
story. As you work on your own books, we will   "read"and discuss a number 
of artists’ books,  and also consider the varieties of artists' writing vs. 
more traditional literary forms. A series of exercises, concerned with 
integrating multiple notational systems into book structures, will be 
introduced.

Joan Lyons, the founding Coordinator of Visual Studies Workshop Press, has 
worked with artists and independent publishers on over 400 book projects. 
Lyons works in a variety of media including photography, print, and digital 
media.She has produced a score of her own bookworks.

SCOTT McCARNEY, July 8-July 12
STRUCTURES FOR VISUAL BOOKS

A book’s binding is complimentary to the content, supportive conceptually 
as well as physically. This workshop will cover basic techniques and 
materials of bookbinding with an emphasis on how the process informs the 
product. Simple pamphlet bindings utilizing unusual folds and inventive 
sewings introduce thematic variations on traditional forms; multiple 
section bindings sewn directly into covers, onto concertina pleats and 
strap supports will extend the use of these forms.

Scott McCarney is an artist and designer whose artwork has found its form 
in books for over twenty years.  His one-of-a-kind, small editions, offset 
multiples, and installations incorporating print materials  integrate 
visual concepts with the physicality of the book.

SUSAN SHARE, July 15-July 19
SCULPTURAL BOOKS: Combining Structures and Imagination

Focusing on the book as sculpture, structure, and container for words and 
images, we will examine ways in which several structural and visual ideas 
may be incorporated into a single bookwork. The class will cover 
traditional and experimental constructions and methods of gluing, sewing, 
folding and hinging, with special attention to the closures which fasten 
books, the ritual involved in opening them, and the configuration of the 
opened book.

Susan Share is an artist, performer, book conservator, and teacher. She 
uses traditional bookbinding techniques in innovative ways and has 
exhibited, performed and conducted workshops throughout the U.S. Her work 
includes large-scale performance objects focusing on movement, sound, and 
transformation, as well as smaller intimate works incorporating found 
materials.


DOUGLAS HOLLELEY, July 29-August 2
FROM PRINT TO BOOK VIA DESKTOP PUBLISHING

Using Photoshop and QuarkXPress, participants will investigate the 
possibilities offered by computer technology to combine images and text in 
response to the particular requirements and characteristics of the book. 
Participants will produce and bind, an artist's book. In doing so, by the 
end of the workshop, students can expect to understand the basic principles 
of text and image editing, scanning, digital image correction, page layout 
and digital printing.

Douglas Holleley works extensively with Macintosh computers and digital 
cameras and has completed a score of digitally-produced books combining 
photographs and text. He is the author and publisher of Digital Book Design 
and Publishing,a comprehensive textbook on computer bookmaking.

Also 19 workshops in:
PHOTOGRAPHY,  DIGITAL IMAGING
WEB DESIGN, VIDEO, 16mm FILM, TEXT IN MOTION,
PERFORMANCE ART, DESIGN: COMPLEXITY THEORY
