Scott McCarney: Bookbinding for Photographers

September 2, 2016 - September 4, 2016

- $460 - $490

The desire to make books with photographic content is as old as photography itself.  The accessibility of digital printing, from the inkjet in your studio to the Indigo of online publishers, is fulfilling this desire for contemporary photographers. This workshop employs the basic tools and techniques of hand bookbinding to make a unique product tailored to the physical and conceptual needs of your images. We will make a series of unique book structures that accommodate single sheets, folded folios and sections, while exploring the materials of traditional book making. The class will focus primarily on physical considerations of the book, but some time will be devoted to discussing how binding structures and layout strategies literally as well as figuratively support image display.
