Reborn Books will show you how to take apart an existing book, and turn it into a true art object. This class will take you through the process, step-by-step, using over two dozen short videos. You’ll watch me put together my own books, learning all my little tips and tricks. On the classroom message board, we’ll discuss how to choose books, papers and binding materials, and how to prepare them to create a book that will be a treasure for many years to come.
You’ll need these basic materials during the class:
An Xacto or craft knife
A glue stick
A standard hole punch
Some long screws
Clamps, like chip clips, or if you have them, woodworking clamps
The first section of the class discusses choosing books, papers and binding materials. If you have some of any of those things that you think you’d like to use, rake them together—but don’t go out and buy anything until you’ve seen those first videos.
This is a Pay What You Want class. The class is well worth $70, but I realize that is out of the question for many folks, so please pay what you can, according to your means. The minimum price to take this class is $15, but you can pay $15-$70, as you wish. Pay what you think learning this technique is worth. Think of anything you pay over $15 as encouragement to offer more classes this way.
