Blockbooks (coursecode: BB-01-18)

08 December 2018

The structure of a blockbook is a very good method to collect pages who are printed on one side and a beautiful way to present the content.
In this workshop we will make two variations of a blockbook.
One book will have a open spine of cloth and paper on back-and frontside.
The other book will have all-over paper on de board pages, a hardcover with cloth and paper and a attractive opening on the spine.
Because of the hinge- construction of both structures the books will open perfectly.
Participants take their own content with them to the workshop (pictures, postcards, decorated paper etc.) so the books will become very personal.
