Shockingly Good Book Arts Class

Montserrat College of Art Summer Book Arts Intensive
taught by Sarah M. Smith

This course is designed to teach you the basics of two traditional techniques that are enjoying a modern resurgence: bookbinding and letterpress. Join us in our letterpress shop to gain access to our platen and Vandercook presses and bookmaking equipment. Along with mastering the art of setting metal and wood type, students will also have the opportunity to convert their own imagery into a printable format by creating polymer plates. Additionally, learn to sew, fold and glue some simple binding structures to bring images, text and three-dimensional ideas together. By the end of the course, you will have produced bound and printed models as well as a simple artist book of your own.
