About this Workshop
Non-sewn bookbinding options of manuscript books and artists’ books can allow a page-spread to unbroken by the sewing thread, and still create a substantial and beautiful book form.
Participants will make two bindings: one blank book “model”, and one book made of painted, printed, lettered pages each person brings. The structure can be used for multi-folio bindings of various sizes, and there are many options to include additional pages in the book. A simple paper wrapper will complete the book.
About the Instructor
Born to a family of gifted engineers and inventors in post-Sputnik middle-America, Suzanne Moore is a painter, print maker and lettering artist whose eclectic interests fuse in the diversity of her artists’ books. She melds word and painted image with form, content and structure into spaces which invite the reader to engage, examine and inquire. Moore’s books blend distinctive design, color use and surface treatments with textual content and contemporary lettering to create work that obscures the line between word and image, legibility and abstraction. Her work is included in numerous private and institutional collections in the US, Europe and South Africa.
