Learn the fundamentals of bookmaking during this hands-on workshop. Get a brief introduction to basic vocabulary, materials, tools, and techniques before creating two blank books with exposed spine sewings: a soft-cover, three-section book using Tyvek; and a two-section book constructed of binder’s board, book cloth, and decorative paper. Then go on a tour of Keith Smith at Home
with the show’s curator, Amanda Bock, the Lynne and Harold Honickman Assistant Curator of Photographs.
