Create beautiful artist books using your prints! In this workshop you will learn the basics of bookbinding through Japanese style books. These books have 4 holes, are side–sewn with Japanese hinges, and bind a stack of single sheets. You will gain new insights and ideas about how to bind your art works. Four types of Japanese traditional sewing will be shown, including Yotsumetoji, Koukitoji, Kitsukoutoji and Asanohatoji.
