In these two classes, you’ll make a pamphlet sewn booklet, a simple case to carry it in, and personalize it with your decorative papers and cutouts.
You’ll learn about paper and grain direction, scoring and folding. You’ll learn the pamphlet stitch to bind your book. I’ll show you how to understand measurements and make a paper case to carry your book in.
I’ve been a specialist in artist papers for 25 years or so. I worked at Pearl Paint Paper, Kate’s Paperie, and New York Central’s Paper Department. Alas! All are gone now. I’ve lectured in NYC at universities, studios, and museums. Besides making my own books, I worked as a freelance binder, and at The Stone Street Press.
I’m really happy to be here at Blaine’s and to have the opportunity to teach a workshop.
