      The structure of artist's books today is constantly changing,
      challenging our conception of the meaning of the word
      book. The act of opening and manipulating a book
      becomes an experience in itself, enlarging the process
      of interaction between the reader and the book. Essential
      to artists and printers in constructing imaginative
      bookbindings for a variety of applications, this course
      investigates the anatomy of the book: when and how
      to sew through the fold; when to pleat, fan, or glue the
      pages together; methods of attaching limp or stiff covers;
      and how the nature of paper can determine an
      appropriate structure. Instruction emphasizes the
      archaeology of the book: how historical sewing structures
      can be revitalized, as well as the value of
      craftsmanship in bookmaking. Each week, students make
      models of different book structures. Assignments encourage
      the imaginative adaption of structures
      outside of class. No previous experience required.
