Vade Mecum: The Constant Companion
with Jana Pullman
Saturday, July 15; 10am-5pm
A vade mecum, or take-me-along, is a book meant to be carried by the owner. Originating in the middle ages, it has come to mean any manual or handbook of instruction that provides vital information to the person who carries it. In this workshop, we will each make a vade mecum in the style of a stab-bound girdle book with pages that unfold to show the full page size.This structure works well with images or large amounts of text and has many possibilities for artists working with the book form.
