Saturday, April 25th and May 2nd, 9am-12pm
Bookarts: Books and Narrative
Instructor: Ryan Lindburg
Fee: $120

Books offer a unique use of time and space over other mediums. Time is frozen on the page, but advances with the turning of the page. The reader can be led forward or backward through careful design. In this class, students will work on the planning and execution of two books using two different methods of binding: pamphlet and stab bindings. One project will be a study in building narrative over the course of pages, examining pacing and the use of the page turn. The second will employ an exquisite corpse-style collaborative narrative. Small editions of each book will be created using photocopies that will then be exchanged among all the students; students will be responsible for the creation and photocopying of pages between sessions.
