GED 569 - An Introduction to Bookmaking

This course will give participants the opportunity to explore the book as a means of visual and verbal communication, to work with the traditional tools and materials of bookbinding, and to make several book structures that will serve as models and inspiration for individual or classroom bookmaking projects. Daily class work will focus on the foundational skills of the book arts. Approximately three hours of each day will be devoted to directed activities with the instructor. The remaining time will be used for independent work in an open studio setting with the instructor available for technical assistance. Class assignments and an independent inquiry project will give students the opportunity to explore the interplay of content, structure, and materials in the book form.

Credits: 3 cr.

Miscellaneous Notes:
A materials fee is due upon registration.
