SIMPLE BOOKS – SIMPLE STRUCTURES with Perla Kopeloff
Handmade books are a form of artistic expression that uses the structure or function of “book” as inspiration—a work of art in book form. In this introductory workshop, you will learn several simple book structures: Japanese, Coptic, pamphlet and stab bindings, removable covers, hardcovers and closures and a variety of folds and stitches. These simple creative book forms will open the doors to artistic exploration and a poetic device for delivering text or imagery. These book structures may be of special interest to creative writing teachers in both elementary and secondary classrooms providing interesting formats for presentations.
Materials Students should provide: All materials will be provided. Bring a lunch or plan to visit local restaurant.
