Photo Summer Session 5
July 18 – August 2, 2021
This workshop will introduce basic materials and techniques of hand bookbinding tailored to meet the needs of photographers and visual artists. We’ll begin with simple folded formats and progress to more complex structures such as accordion fold, drum leaf binding, map fold, flag books, interlocking structures, perfect binding, and stab binding. Discussions and exercises will explore what your images can express when presented in these different book forms. Students will use a mixture of personal archives, found photos, and newly-created digital images along with their narratives to generate several small-form books. The workshop will include time for shooting, post-production, editing, and binding. All levels.
