A Border Book is a structure that allows multiple possibilities for imagery and text. The border book is a format, not a particular type of binding, but it folds down to a book that can be of any size. It is a fun structure that could be read page-by-page or at once, when extended out. The content of the book could be developed by your favorite medium(s), whether it is painting, drawing, printmaking and sewing; utilizing photographs or collaged elements. We will explore different ways of incorporating text with the imagery, depending on the medium you choose for the entire book. Bring paints and drawing materials, memorabilia of different sorts, old prints that have been carved or etched (we have a press for intaglio and relief), threads and needles, stamps and decorative paper book making materials will be provided.
