A surprising number of international classes, workshops, lectures, and conferences in the book arts are being announced in the new issue of the online Book Arts Newsletter. Everything from gilding to binding; photo-polymer and digital printing; textual poetics and ur-text. Here’s the link: http://www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/pdf/newspdfs/116.pdf
This list is assembled and published each month thanks to Sarah Bodman of the University of the West of England, Bristol, where she is Senior Research Fellow for Artists’ Books. Here’s a little more about her work:
