[BKARTS] Wimberly Library Book Arts Workshop: Carol Todaro



Wimberly Library Book Arts Workshop at Florida Atlantic University
Boca Raton, Florida

Carol Todaro: Concertina Bindings
Saturday and Sunday, September 20 and 21, 2003
10am to 4pm
Tuition: $110 ($40 FAU Students), plus materials fee $15
All levels

This two-day workshop focuses on some of the many variations of the
versatile concertina book structure. The first day will explore several
ways to fold spines and various ways to attach pages, including
pamphlet-stitched signatures, Hedi Kyle's flag binding, and an album style
that has folios attached with the fold on the foredge of the book.

Day Two will focus on covers: two types of covered boards and laminated
self-covers. Slides and examples from the Jaffe Collection will be
incorporated. Participants will complete at least four books each. If time
permits, we may include a session in which participants design their own
concertina style, and we'll talk about the process.

Carol Todaro was the recipient of an Individual Artist's Grant from the
State of Florida in 2000. Her work is collected at major book arts
collections, including the Library of Congress, the Cary Graphic Arts
Collection at Rochester Institute of Technology, and the Jaffe Collection.
Her most recent solo exhibition, "Floating World," an installation of large
scale bookworks, was presented last November in conjunction with Miami Book
Fair International.

This class is limited to 15 participants. To apply, contact John Cutrone
