Four-day Workshop:
Fabrications: Developing your Calligraphic Artist's Book
Kitty Maryatt
March 17-18 and March 30, April 1, 2001

The workshop will focus on identifying text and images that you=20
are passionate about and showing you how to structure all that
information into book form. There will be exercises on collecting
and sifting through verbal and visual materials with a view to
selection of the best of the best, expanding where necessary,
developing a design scheme and producing a dummy. Various ways
to bind the materials will be explored, but the basic structure will
be to build the book in signatures. That building block will give you
the most options. We will work together the first weekend to learn
the basics, and produce your section for the collaborative book during
the intervening two weeks. The second weekend we will bind the
books and will refine ideas for your own artist's book.

Kitty Maryatt has been teaching bookmaking at Scripps College for=20
fifteen years. The students make collaborative books by letterpress,
printing editions of 65 copies for sale. She was thrown into this field
thirty years ago though her first love, calligraphy, which taught her
about type, so naturally she had to get letterpress equipment to print
and of course, learn to bind books. She owns Two Hands Press in
Woodland Hills, CA where she helps clients in their bookmaking needs.=20
She also teaches Book Structures at UCLA Extension in the Spring.
