Movables in a Book Format workshop – Philadelphia, PA

June 4, 2016
10:00 amto5:00 pm


The earliest movables in books date from the 13th century. A volvelle (from the Latin verb volvere, meaning “to turn or roll around”) was used to coordinate religious dates and even to predict the future. The form has endured to this day. In this workshops we will make a volvelle, and other versatile movables such as turning wheels, Victorian wheels, slides and dissolves. The class will make models of each of the structures and there can be a discussion of the compensations needed to incorporate the elements into a book. Saturday, June 4, 2016 10am to 5pm in Philadelphia, PA, USA. For more information, contact the Delaware Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers.
