[BKARTS] Workshop in Portland, OR: Photographic Artist Books with Laura Russell


Four Tuesdays, February 5-26, 2008, 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.

23 Sandy Gallery

623 NE 23rd Avenue

Portland, OR 97232



With the popularity of digital cameras and the high quality of today's ink
jet printers, artists and photographers are looking for ways to incorporate
their own original photography into handmade artist books. These intimate
books are an ideal vehicle for photographs as they can be used to create
either purely visual books or books that combine text and image to form a
compelling narrative.

This workshop is designed for photographers or book artists who want to
create one-of-a-kind or limited-edition artist books using their own
photographs. We'll talk about concepting, photo and text selection,
imposition and computer design considerations as well as practicing
bookbinding and editioning techniques.

In this hands-on class you will bind four books, all using very versatile
artist book structures that can be adapted for your future book ideas. For
most of the books bound in this workshop you will have the opportunity to
use your own photographs that you print and bring to class. No bookbinding
experience necessary as we will cover the basic principles from how to fold
a sheet of paper to binding a hard cover book. All materials and handouts
