Sculptural Books: Carousel, Tunnel, & Flag Books

Books not only contain information but can  also be a way to explore our surroundings in unique ways. In this workshop we will explore options for three-dimensional bookmaking. Concentrating on accordion folded variations, we will construct tunnel, carousel, and flag books. These structures are ideal for making artist books, children’s books, and unique presentation items. Tunnel and Carousel books have historically been used for children’s books or keepsakes and the flag book combines the accordion with pages that move as you open the book.

In this course you will learn:

How to use the bookbinding tools.
Knowledge of bookmaking materials and their qualities.
How to make three (3) sculptural book structures.
Ways to use narrative imagery in the book form.

Level of Experience / Skills Required

All levels; no prior book-making experience required.
