Workshop: Bookbinding for Photographers

bks photo print.jpg

This two-part workshop will present book structures useful for photographers, printmakers, and collage artists making imagery one side of sheets of paper. Book made will include the Drum Leaf Binding, Storage Book and Multiple-Leaf Accordion structures. These structures allow the artist to print, draw, or collage on single sheets before binding, ideal for photographers using photo paper to print their images. These binding methods allow for easy arrangement of imagery, from one image to the next though the book avoiding complicated imposition necessary in sewn books. These books use adhesive instead of thread to bind them, allowing for uninterrupted views of the images across the pages. These structures will also be useful for making journals and sketchbooks. Students are encouraged to bring samples of their favorite papers to discuss and sample prints to bind in class.
