Students in this weekend workshop will each make a traditionally bound
photo album. We will begin with sheets of paper and will discuss
various options for stubbing out the book for photos.  The book block,
sewn on tapes, will be rounded and backed with a hollow.  The case
will be 1/4 cloth with decorated paper and (time permitting) an inset
for a photo.  We also will discuss methods of mounting photos.

Tool List: Bone folder
Steel ruler
Round paste brush
Backing hammer (optional)
Scalpel/exacto with new blades
