Friday, June 1, 2018, 10am – 5pm
The Book Restructured: Wire-Edge Binding: Daniel E. Kelm

Nontraditional books (e.g., books with thick pages, or books that are sculptural) may require the use of a material or movement not possible with conventional structures. Wire-edge hinging grew out of just such a challenge. This binding configuration utilizes a thin metal wire along the hinging edge of each page. This workshop presents various wire-edge structures useful for books, enclosures, and articulated sculpture. Participants produce both a simple codex and an accordion model that forms a tetrahedron. All levels of experience are welcome.
