with Jake Lahah
Aug 4, 10-4pm
In this class, students will work with the risograph to make completed Japanese stab bound books/zines. We’ll go over how to use the risograph and the binding method to make a completed edition of 20 books. Participants should come to class with an idea in mind and some drawings or photographs to work from. The instructor will work with you on concept, design, and structure to make the book a completed work of art.
