Book Arts for Photographers – The Accordion Book Revealed

Use your photography to explore the sculptural side of books! Students in this four-week class will learn how to use the accordion book structure to reveal photographic narratives. Demos will be given on how to construct accordion books three different ways, plus a few more variations. Along the way, students will create their own handmade books that express their personal photographic content. All levels of experience are welcome.
