Great that you're doing this, Jill. I have no suggestions other than
those you've mentioned for structures that can be done in a 2 hours
class. However, there is a neat 2 signature binding that's quick and
easy and impressive....don't know how to explain it to you. Also,
there was a little book that we made at your house once that's fun.
It was an accordian but it had cut outs that could turn from one side
to the other (back to front) and it was glued onto boards for a hard
cover. Guess these have to be pretty minimal/fast/easy. The appeal
will have to be in the papers and content and accoutrements.
Personally I love paste papers and I don't like tunnel books and pop-
up...just my opinion.
I passed your email on to the members of of my BookArts group and they
are asking "where" and "cost" of the classes.
