Making an artist book is not really about writing. It is about taking a vision or pictorial story and making a book of your very own, no publisher involved. One of the book styles we will learn takes only one piece of paper and by cutting and folding it you create a multiple paged book. We will a variety of forms including accordion and origami folded books as well as sewn pamphlet style books. The morning will be spent learning various book forms, while students will concentrate on creating a book in the afternoon. Please bring your favorite art materials such as colored pencils, pens, markers, etc. These book form could be easily adapted to the classroom making this a great workshop for teachers.
