Bookbinding for Artists & Photographers, Goa



Join me for this introductory workshop in Goa. The first section is full.
The second section is still available for Feb 11 & 12, 2020.
Participants will have the opportunity to learn a range of binding structures. Starting with one-page folded structures to free up the minds and hands, we will move onto simple sewn structures, eventually combining these skills to make more complex structures. Finally, we will work on a multi-section binding to wrap up the final day. A talk on the history of the book with a focus on India will be given at the end of the first day.

The workshop will take place all day on the both days at Dayanita Singh's studio in Saligao.

Hand Papermaking Magazine



Make sure you get the latest issue of Hand Papermaking Magazine's Collaborations in Paper issue (Vol. 34, No. 1). It is full of wonderfully written articles. The cover for this issue is the collaborative piece I made with artist Catherine Nash for the Intergenerationality portfolio. Of course I'm a little biased, but I think it looks beautiful.

Algal/Fungal


My latest artist book, Algal/Fungal is in the binding phase. I printed this book during a 2-week alumni residency at UI Center for the Book. Algal/Fungal is about the three main types of lichen: Foliose, Crustose and Fruticose.





Title page. The book has 4 multi-block wood engravings. This particular engraving was completed at Penland in 2016 during Gaylord Schanilec's class.
