A day in London at Camberwell – 30 years of making and thinking about books compressed into 4 hours – starting the day by work shopping  the generation of images, ideas of translation into text , construction of multiple narratives including nonlinear, exploration of sequence, introducing the idea of form as content through 3D structures, manipulation as narrative, 100 years of western book construction including experimental and combination bindings, a presentation that de-constructs the idea of the book and supports the students in rethinking their relationship to book (image above is from presentation). Students go away with lots to think about alongside a brief that directs them to a specific location chosen by themselves where they will have to make a piece of book art that is informed by that space.  looking forward to seeing the results next week.
