This class condenses lectures and demonstrations to cover material quickly. We will bind a chapbook, accordion, papyrus scroll, Nag Hamadi single quire codex, and a hardcover book – all in the first day! We’ll then move on to binding books with and without sewing, books that do and do not look “handmade,” and fitted archival boxes for books. There will also be time to work on independent binding projects. Beginners are welcome and will find this to be an expert introductory instruction. Those with more experience can practice, refine, and expand their book repertoire.
Susan Mills is a visual artist who works entirely in artist book form. Her artists’ books are handmade and self-published in small editions—sometimes an edition of one—and are collected internationally. Susan initiated and hosts the biweekly podcast series Bookbinding Now. She teaches book arts at Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and bookbinding classes at Void in Saskatoon.
