Impossibly large images bring excitement to the pop-up book. Strategies for creating these expansive structures are useful in miniature books, as they allow the artist to increase the drama and expand the content. Using cardstock and a small set of simple hand tools, students will build and bind a number of structures that move above, beyond, and behind the page. Beginners are welcome; experienced participants will explore pop-ups in a whole new way.

INSTRUCTOR 
Shawn Sheehy’s interest in paper engineering grew from his background in sculpture, graphic design and book arts. Sheehy editions pop-up artists' books and creates mass-market pop-up books ("Welcome to the Neighborwood" is his most recent). His work is collected by the Jaffe Collection and many other book arts collections. He teaches paper engineering workshops all over the U.S. and this is his second time teaching at JCBA. <www.shawnsheehy.com>

The SPRINGBACK BINDING
Instructor Karen Hanmer

 

Saturday & Sunday May 20 & 21, 2017
9 AM to 5 PM each day
JCBA Bindery, FAU Library

Tuition Schedule:
$300 general public
$280 FAU faculty and staff and students from other institutions
$260 FAU students

The nineteenth century Springback Binding with its enthusiastic opening is ideal for journals, guest books, sketch books, or any application where it is desirable that the book open flat, and then some. The book both opens and closes with a satisfying jolt.
 
The Springback Binding is also a perfect way to delve more deeply into traditional binding. The book features two-part “split boards,” reinforced “made” endsheets, and a “spring” made of layers of card and paper. With its robust aesthetic, the Springback Binding is a great way to begin working with leather. The paring requires minimal finesse, and the modest leather headcap is easy to form.

Note: This is a fast-paced workshop for students who have some experience with traditional binding. Students should be comfortable sewing on supports and have successfully made books on their own outside a workshop setting.

INSTRUCTOR
Karen Hanmer’s artist-made books are physical manifestations of personal essays intertwining history, culture, politics, technology, and arid wit. Her Chicago studio practice is unusually varied, including small editions of artists’ books, larger editions of inexpensive multiples, bookbinding instructional materials, and one-of-a-kind design bindings. Hanmer’s work is included in collections ranging from The Getty Museum and the Library of Congress to Yale University and Graceland, and of course the Jaffe Collection at Florida Atlantic University Libraries, where she was featured in a three-floor solo exhibition called "Retrotech" in 2010. She is winner of the Jury Prize for Binding in the 2009 Helen Warren DeGolyer American Bookbinding Competition and is one of only nine graduates of the American Academy of Bookbinding’s Fine Binding program. Hanmer is a leader in the book arts community, having served on the editorial board of The Bonefolder, as Exhibitions Chair for the Guild of Book Workers, and as frequent exhibition curator and juror. She offers workshops and private instruction focusing on a solid foundation in basic binding skills. This is her second time teaching at JCBA.
