[BKARTS] Carol Barton Workshops at FAU



The Jaffe Book Arts Collection welcomes book artist Carol Barton for our
next book arts workshop: "Tunnel Books." A tunnel book (or peephole book,
as it is sometimes called) is a set of pages bound with concertinas on two
sides and viewed through a central opening, allowing the viewer a
three-dimensional spatial experience. Carol will be teaching two sessions
of two-day workshops on the tunnel book structure: choose Saturday/Sunday
(May 10 and 11) or Monday/Tuesday (May 12 and 13). These are intensive, all
day workshops (10am to 4pm each day). Participants will construct a basic
model of the tunnel book structure and then adapt the structure to their
own creative vision.

No experience is necessary, but this will be a great workshop for novices
and experienced bookmakers, too. Register early! Class size is limited to
15 students each. Tuition for each two-day workshop is $125 (general public
and FAU faculty and staff), $55 (FAU students, with current ID). Materials
fee is included in the tuition cost.

Contact me for registration forms, additional information, etc.

ps. We've just received one of Carol Barton's latest books, "Five Luminous
Towers." It's not a tunnel book, mind you; this one is a pop-up book
designed to be read in the dark. The book illuminates from within, as text
and five towers from the Italian landscape rise up to greet you. Total
excitement!
