[BKARTS] Photography and Book Arts

The San Francisco Center for the Book has openings in two upcoming classes
that focus on photography and the book arts.

In Photographing Books, with Jacques Cressaty, students learn to build their

top photographer of fine art begins with fundamentals and goes on to
emphasize the special considerations necessary to make effective photographs
of books and bookworks. The cost is $220 for three sessions, two Saturdays,
July 27 and August 3, from 10 a.m.5 p.m., and Wednesday August 7, from 710
p.m. The class ID is T2-072702-ART. Cressaty is a fine art photographer who
has for the past 14 years photographed both two and three-dimensional
artworks. He has worked with such galleries and museums as Wirtz, Rena
Bransten, Olga Dollar, SFMOMA, MOMA in New York and The Walker Art Center.

All About Cyanotypes, an illustrated lecture by Susannah Hays on Monday July
