Carousel Books Workshop

September 13, 2014toSeptember 14, 2014


Center for Book Arts, New York, NY:

I will be teaching a two day workshop introducing the methods of constructing carousel books, sometimes called star books. A book first produced in the 1930’s, the format is mostly used in children’s books. Why should they have all the fun? A carousel book can be viewed section by section and also opened fully to create a book in the round. Students will make models and also construct their own individual examples using their own drawings, photographs, rubber stamps, collages, etc. Center for Book Arts: Class Details
