[BKARTS] UCLA Extension Class

The class, Handmade Book Structures, will be taught at UCLA Extension this summer by Kitty Maryatt.
The class starts on June 26, 2007 and will meet twice a week for six weeks. The hours are
6:30 to 9:30 p.m. The cost is $515. To enroll, contact UCLA Extension at (310) 825-9971.

A description of the class follows:
Essential to artists and printers in constructing imaginative bookbindings for a variety of applications,
this course investigates the anatomy of the book: when and how to sew through the fold; when to pleat,
fan, or glue the pages together; methods of attaching limp or stiff covers; and how the nature of paper can
determine an appropriate structure. Instruction emphasizes the archaeology of the book—how historical
sewing structures can be revitalized—as well as the value of craftsmanship in bookmaking. Each week,
students make models of different book structures. Assignments encourage the imaginative adaptation
of structures outside of class. No previous experience required. Enrollment limited.

Kitty Maryatt: MFA from UCLA. Owner, Two Hands Press. Director of the Scripps College Press,
