Alexandra Janezic
Bookbinding for the Self-Publisher

This workshop will cover fundamental bookbinding techniques and create a library of structures that students can pull from and expand on for their own creative book projects. During the first week, we’ll cover pamphlets, accordion bindings, link stitch bindings, paper case bindings, flat spine case bindings, and the basics of box making. We’ll also address the material choices and ideological considerations needed to create a successful edition of book objects. In the second week, students will develop and create their own editions of hand-bound books. Students are encouraged to bring an idea for a project they would like to edition. All levels.
