Today / This Week!

Today, our class was visited by Rachelle Chuang, a bookmaker and instructor of book arts (and other design courses) at various colleges around Southern California. (Please check out her website.) She brought a bunch of material and instructions for how to do a number of different kinds of bookbinding. She walked our students through the Three-Hole Pamphlet Stitch and the Japanese Binding Stitch. At the end of class, our students had each made two lovely books of blank paper. Photographs are forthcoming.

Joseph Cornell
Piet Mondrian
Robert Motherwell
Marianne Moore
Terry Eagleton
Walker Percy, "The Loss of the Creature"
Nick Waterhouse, "Time's All Gone"
Eddie Vedder, "Guarantee"
