Over the summer semester, a group of students will be participating in the third annual Book Arts Summer Intensive course. In a little over a month, the students will be learning a variety of book-related skills including: binding, sewing, paper making and more.
With such a short amount of time to learn and develop, the students were almost immediately tasked with creating small, “fall apart books,” which consist of an accordion-like text block and a no-glue approach to book assembly. Tasked with creating two books by next class, the students eagerly went to work.
The results were diverse and fun and beautiful.
With the inaugural project out of the way, everyone was ready to dive headfirst into a month of madness and magic. Keep posted for more stories about Southern Virginia’s summer art classes!
