The Artists’ Book & Bookbinding Course 2019–2020

31 / July / 2019

“move the world and see things in different ways.”

The program includes the entire process of elaboration of the book, from the idea to the realization. The work methods can vary from printmaking to photography, from painting to computer processing, from writing to the use of recycled materials. Ample space is given to classical, artistic and alternative binding exercises. The examples of books from the Scuola’s collection will be a further incentive for everyone to develop this medium. National and international Book exhibitions and events will be suggested to the participants.

Artists from the Scuola and guest artists from all over the world will take part in the classes with lectures and demos.
