Workshop on storage books

From: Kelli Piotrowski <piotrowski>
Date: Tuesday, September 14, 2004
The New York Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers is pleased to
announce a workshop on storage books with Hedi Kyle to be held on
October 15-16, 2004 (9am-4pm). As versatile containers and packaging
devices storage books can accommodate all sorts of texts, images,
and even small objects. This workshop focuses on practical and
creative solutions to store and display content. With many samples
on hand we will examine structural features and mechanical
functions. Assembling several small scale models will involve
techniques such as folding, lacing, slotting, cutting, and sewing.
Participants should bring contents that require the design of a
special book structure. Some books may be folded from one sheet of
paper while others abound with complexity. An assortment of
materials is available but bring anything you would like to use in
addition. Beginners are welcome.

Hedi Kyle is Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of the
Arts in Philadelphia. She recently retired as chief conservator at
the American Philosophical Society. She is co-founder of the Paper
and Book Intensive.

The workshop will be held at the Preservation Laboratory of The New
York Academy of Medicine is at 1216 Fifth Avenue at the corner of
East 103rd Street in Manhattan. The workshop fee for Guild of Book
Workers members is $ 145.00. For non-members the fee is $ 175.00.
The materials fee for the workshop is $ 25.00.
