In this course, students will learn basic techniques of creating books by hand. By using commonly available materials (papers, glue, ribbons and binding tape) and simple hand tools (needle and thread, awl, bone-folder) you will learn to make:
1. Single signature and multiple signature books
2. Instant folded books and zines
3. Stab stitch variations
4. Accordion books and variations
5. Long stitch binding
6. Coptic stitch binding
7. Tibetan ribbon binding
8. A project of your own design, combining methods and non-traditional materials.

Students will come away from this course with a familiarity of the ancient, traditional building blocks of binding, and the fundamental skills to analyze and develop their own techniques.
