Highbrow Punk, Simple & Not As Simple Bindings for Zines, Chapbooks, or Whatever

University of Michigan Library University of Michigan Library
University of Michigan Library
Conservation technician Kyle Clark teaches you to produce simple one and two signature book structures appropriate for making editioned books with minimal tools. You'll be introduced to methods of designing and editioning books, zines, and artists books from scratch with the use of home and office art supplies combined with digital scanning and printing technologies. You'll produce three bookbinding models (two softcover and one hardcover), a book design prototype, and will have the opportunity to contribute to an exquisite corpse zine.

Letterpress printing and fine binding are beautiful expressions of the book but often involve expensive and bulky equipment which can be a barrier to book production. Clark wants to empower you to be able to print, bind, and edition books with readily available materials and equipment.

This is a single workshop offered in two sessions, so plan to attend both April 1 and April 8, 2–5 p.m.

Registration for U-M students, faculty and staff: https://myumi.ch/QAK9E

Registration for all other attendees: https://myumi.ch/r8g38

The workshop itself is free, but there is a required $20 materials kit that can be purchased from Hollander’s for shipping or store pick up (more info upon registration). If this presents a barrier, please contact jlausch@umich.edu.
