This class has been cancelled due to low enrollment. ONLINE: In this online course, students can expect to gain a broader understanding of book arts and book collections. Five weeks of classes will be devoted to hands-on bookmaking—from simple forms to more complicated-looking bookbinding. Students will learn how to create all-new books, and about new places and book artists to visit online. The alternate five weeks will focus on learning about bookmaking—traditional handmade books to contemporary examples of the artist book—from speakers who are museum curators, book artists, and professors involved with book artists. This will include a visit to the Rollins College Book Arts Collection. Explore the use of the book as an artist's medium, including methods for making books by hand, as well as concepts related to the book as a format for images and ideas. You will learn to develop your skills and, in the process, a little about the world of bookmaking. | Active Skill Learning.
