Binding miniature books is an intriguing challenge.  To create tiny books
that open and shut comfortably, traditional bookmaking techniques and
materials must be adapted.  Participants will bind a miniature book in a
multi-section pamphlet structure using their own laminates of leather,
coloured tissues, and watercolour paper.  There will be time to explore
leather onlays and an introduction to hand tooling with foil.  They will
also make a slipcase to fit their book.  The book can be made with blank
sheets of light weight stationary or printed texts available for purchase
from the instructor.
