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

We are hungry for storiesótelling 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 artistsí 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 bookís 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
