Summer Workshop Program 2023
Explore the possibilities inherent in the book’s function as a repository of images and ideas. Experiment with bookbinding structures, formats, and materials, using your own artwork and/or writing. Experiment with bookbinding techniques to understand how the book sets a stage for your work. Each student will make six book models, cutting and collaging their own work to test out the possibilities of pacing, structure, sequencing, and scale of text and image. We will then take one model and develop it further so that it can be used as a final artist book or a mock up for production.Janine-Wong-Materials-List-SP23.pdf
