Discover what happens when you add artmaking and bookbinding together.
With Book + Art, explore the basics of surfaces, images and words in order to create provocative works of art with layers of meaning. Whether you’re altering a pre-made book or creating your own, here you’ll find both the instruction and the inspiration to get it done. In addition to learning mixed-media techniques—such as how to age paper, transfer images and make your own monoprints—you’ll be given step-by-step instruction for numerous book structures including:
- Single-fold and bi-fold books
- Simple and extended accordions
- Perfect bindings
- Side-sewn books
- Single- and multiple-signature books
- Unbound collections
