Re: what to teach to calligraphers?

I was introduced to books through calligraphy and just love all sorts of
bindings.  As a first experience to calligraphers,
you might consider a portfolio case that individual leaves could be stacked
inside of and kept .  That might be less
intimidating as to the content of the book.  Other books with pockets would
work along the same theme where the
artist is encouraged to save snippets of color combinations, calligraphic
quotes, or ideas to use in the future.  If sewn
bindings are taught , you could show them how to tip in calligraphy work,
ideas, or quotes with glue, photo corners, or
by carefully slitting the paper at the corners.
