ONLINE: Tiny Books, Big Charm
Small is beautiful! We’ll make hands full of tiny books in three styles (accordion, dragon, wrap-around cover), all under three inches square. Not only are tiny books adorable, working at this reduced scale allows us to work easily and quickly and to think about how scale changes our experience. No prior bookbinding experience is required. This class is an ideal introduction to bookmaking for a newcomer and a fun exploration for an experienced bookbinder.
