Summer School for Grown-ups: Chapbooksâ€”The Pamphlet Stitch & the Art of Self-Publishing
Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, Forum, 4th Floor
Learn the building blocks of bookbinding, including basic terminology, tearing sheets to size, folding and piercing folios, and the pamphlet stitch—a simple and elegant binding with a lot of room for variation. We'll also talk about self-publishing and production. You'll leave the class with some blank books you've made and the knowledge to make more at home, with publishing your comic books, poetry, manifestos, zines, or novellas right around the corner! Taught by artist Woody Leslie.
Friday, July 12, 2 p.m.
