BOOKBINDING FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS
Scott McCarney     
July 13-17
      
The ease and accessibility of digital printing has brought the notion of the
photo book back into vogue. But how to make a unique product tailored to
your images' needs? This workshop will introduce basic materials and
processes of hand bookbinding with the photographer in mind. Sample bindings
and book models will be made including traditional albums, a unique
single-sheet Coptic binding, and innovative structures suitable for
print-on-demand projects. Techniques for tipping-in images, folding mat
sections, and incorporating interleaving materials will be introduced. A
two-tray drop-spine Solander style box will be constructed which can be used
for storing prints, protecting a fine binding, or packaging samples made in
the workshop.

The class will focus mainly on physical considerations of the book, but
participants are encouraged to bring work in progress or ideas for photo
books. Some time will be devoted to discussing how binding structures and
layout strategies can figuratively as well as literally support image
display. Photo-based books will be amply illustrated through slide
presentations and a visit to one of Rochester's unique book collections.
This is an advanced level class. Previous bookbinding experience is
required.

Scott McCarney has been making books as works of art for over twenty-five
years. His bookworks explore many media, from offset and digital printing to
sculptural installation. He lectures, teaches and exhibits internationally
and is currently an adjunct faculty member at RIT. His most recent work has
been produced with print-on-demand technology with considerable pre- and
post-production consideration.
