What do you do with an altered book once it’s finished? Wall Books will show you how to create books that hang on the wall, like canvases, allowing you to display and enjoy them like the art objects they are.
This four lesson class will take you through the process of creating a wall book, step-by-step, using short videos. You’ll watch me put together my own books, learning all my little tips and tricks, including how to fake real photo postcards, how to age realistically, and how to assemble a book that looks as though its various pieces have simply been blown together by the wind. You’ll hear my thought process as I pick books, gather objects, and make design choices, and will have my ear as you make them yourself. At the end, you’ll have a lovely piece of book art to hang on your wall.
The first lesson in the class discusses choosing books, and includes information about the supports and hangers you’ll need to create the wall book structure. You will have to obtain these items after watching the videos that discuss them. I strongly recommend that you not choose a book until after you’ve watched the videos for the first lesson.
This is a Pay What You Want class. The class is well worth $50, 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 $10, but you can pay $5-$50, as you wish. Pay what you think learning this technique is worth. Think of anything you pay over $10 as encouragement to offer more classes this way.
