Bookbinding and Book Arts Classes at the Hoyt Street
1306 NW Hoyt, #406
Portland, OR

Winter Term 2002

The Painted Exhibition Book

In this class you will learn how to design and build a
painted book.  This particular book structure was
designed specifically as a way to effectively display
artist books in an exhibition setting.  The design
allows the book to stand open easily to any page, and
yet is a sturdy construction which allows for a high
level of finish.  In this course we will cover:
material basics, paper sizing and color treatments,
incorporation of your art techniques (painting,
drawing, collage, photography, etc.) into the book,
design, construction and finish of the book.  Previous
bookbinding experience helpful, but not required.
Instructor: Doug Shafer.
