"BUILDING THE BOOK"

As versatile containers and package devices books
accommodate text and imagery, textured materials
and objects.  Mechanical function and intriguing
structure share elements with architectural spaces
and forms found in nature.  The book becomes a
portable hoard for the ordinary and the fantastic.
This class offers a wide range of bookmaking techniques
based on sewing, folding, lacing and interweaving.
We will combine characteristic features of codex,
concertina and scroll to arrive at unique constructions.
To induce content we explore diverse methods such
as frottage, collage, stenciling, and low tech printing.
Bring things you imagine to be included in your books.
