Summer Books Arts Class


Keith Owens
May 17 – June 2, 2010
Monday – Thursday, 8:30 – 4:20
…………………………………………………….
Interested in the book arts? You should be. It’s a skill that can set you apart as a designer, even in this highly digital world. Closer to home, each of you will be also required to create a professional bound portfolio your senior year. If you want to become a book arts wiz, consider taking my class this summer. Details are listed below.

In this class intensive, students will explore the techniques necessary to create a variety of book forms including sewn bindings, stab-stitch or Japanese binding, post binding, glued binding and project-based specialty bindings. Students will also learn techniques fundamental to any book arts project including: folding, gluing, corner treatments, forwarding, casing and finishing. Box building techniques will also be demonstrated.

For their class projects, students can choose to create a personal portfolio, bindings for existing book content or both, if time permits. The techniques students learn will enable them to tackle book arts projects they would normally find difficult if not impossible to complete with any level of success.
