Hard Cover Accordion Book

December 10, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm

In this workshop you’ll learn how to construct a hardcover accordion-style book based on Hedi Kyle’s non-adhesive cover design. Students will be guided through the unique process of preparing an accordion text block as well as assembling fully covered boards without the help of adhesive! This unique structure includes a removable spine piece which allows the book to be experienced in two ways–a single elongated view or read like a traditional codex. This class introduces basic book binding concepts including measuring, scoring and tipping folios.

Cost:  $70 (includes materials)

Dates:  Saturday, December 10 2016, 12:00pm to 4:00pm
