Here is a synopsis of the workshop:

Streamlining the Production of Artist Book Editions
By Carol Barton

When it comes to making multiples of a book, artists must approach the
project with a different set of design constraints than when making a uniqu=
volume. The process of streamlining production can be as fun and creatively
challenging as the development of the work itself. In this workshop,
students will learn how to make choices concerning reproduction methods,
bindings, edition size and structure based on limitations of time,
facilities and budget. Students will also learn how to construct ji8gs and
templates to facilitate production, and how to make the production process
more efficient. Participants in the workshop will work together to design
and produce a small edition during the class session, and each student will
get a copy of the project.

Carol Barton is a book artist, curator, and arts administrator who has
published several editions and has organized both local and national shows
of artists' books. Her work is exhibited internationally and is in numerous
collections, including the Library of Congress, the Museum of Modern Art,
and the Victoria and Albert Museum in London. She served as curator for the
Smithsonian Institution=B9s exhibition Science and the Artist's Book.  She ha=
taught at elementary, high school, and university levels, as well as
conducted adult workshops at art centers across the United States. She is o=
the faculty at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, where she teache=
courses in bookbinding and book structures. In 1999 her artist's book
edition, Vision Shifts, was published by the Borowsky Center in
Philadelphia. She was awarded the Bogliasco Fellowship for a residency in
Italy in the fall of 2000, during which time she worked on Five Luminous
Towers. Most recently has been awarded a residency by the Sacatar Foundatio=
