Drop Spine Binding
I will be teaching a two-day workshop at IS Projects in Fort Lauderdale, FL on January 20+21 (Sat+Sun), 10am-5pm!
This Drop-Spine Drumleaf book is a simple glued structure that lays incredibly flat and eliminates the need to print on the front and back of a sheet of paper. In this two-day workshop, students will learn the properties of book materials, how to bind pages together, and how to create the wonderful hard-covers that drop out of the way to allow a flat open surface. Discussion will focus on variations of the binding, advantages to this binding, and problem solving.
It's ideal for photographers, printmakers, zinesters, or anyone that just wants to make a beautiful book. All materials are included and no previous book experience required!
