UNIVERSITY of UTAH | A Book In Two Days

Hosted/Organized by: University of Utah


Whether new to bookmaking and letterpress or a more seasoned practitioner, join us for two intensive days of creative productivity. Each participant develops, designs, and produces a limited-edition artists’ book, choosing from several provided structural options. Each structural template allows single-sheet printing which will enable multiple runs on multiple pages in record time. Focus is on response to process and requires a fluidity in thinking and making. Instructors guide participants through ideation, typesetting, image development, simple matrix making, printing, and folding or binding. The letterpress edition is completed during the fast-paced workshop, and the binding is completed at home once the prints are dry. Participants leave with a stack of prints, instructions and a mock-up for binding, and a copy of each participant’s artist book!

10 am — 6 pm each day
