Historic Book Structures for Conservators
July 14 - August 15, 2014


    Jeff Peachey

This five-week class meets Monday - Friday each week at the
Bookbinding Department of North Bennet Street School.  Field trips
are scheduled for some Fridays, and other Fridays will be open lab
days.  The course is designed to further develop basic bookbinding
bench skills and to explore historic book structures in the context
of the conservation of books as historic artifacts.  Readings,
research on book structures and bookbinding history, and creating
models of historic structures are the basis of the course.  Class
presentations, short essays, a midterm and possible online
publishing are required.  The course is for students who are serious
about bookbinding history and who are interested in further
exploring conservation of books as cultural heritage.

Class size is limited.  Admission to the class is determined by
application.  Application requirements include a personal statement
on the role of the class in your work, a portfolio of
three-dimensional studio work that exhibits fine detail, and a
recommendation (from a professional in the conservation or
preservation field if possible).  Students will need to supply their
own hand tools.

For workshop registration contact North Bennet Street School.
