This course will cover advanced techniques in binding while laying a proper foundation in book arts. Both practical and aesthetic decisions will be discussed as more challenging structures such as Coptic binding, portfolio, and flag books to name only a few are created. Independent projects will be produced over the course of the semester in which content of the book will be emphasized. This course will culminate with a final artists' book project where a student will explore any binding of their choosing while making conceptual decisions under a universal theme. Priority to graduate students of the Art and the Book department; open to other degree students as space is available.
