Medium to Message: Single-Sheet Zines in Editions
with Monica Edwards Larson
Sat-Sun, April 22 & 23; 10am-5pm
Letterpress experience helpful, but not required
Begin by looking at examples of book forms that demonstrate the power of the press and how books throughout history disseminated information. Learn basic techniques for folding variations of single-sheet book forms, ranging from traditional codex to sculptural book objects such as pop-outs, pocket books, and dos à dos. Then, create a final project of your own design in which you choose a single-sheet structure that relates to your content. In addition, the class will use Vandercook presses to create multiple copies of your book to distribute.
