Book Suey and Lyz Luidens of @pranksterpress invite you to explore the physical process of making books... in a bookstore! ⁠

⁠In this workshop, Lyz will show participants the ⁠techiniques to create a perfect bound book. Perfect bound bookding involves creating a text block (a stack of pages) glued or sewn together (in this case glued) and gluing them to the spine of the book. This book is held together entirely with glue. In this workshop we'll be using cardstock covers, PVA glue, and bone folders. Lyz will have on hand their collection of maps as a decorative paper option, but participants are also totally welcome to bring their own artwork or decorative paper to put on the covers or interior of their books as well. ⁠

$50 fee includes all materials.⁠ You may register on Eventbrite, or post a message here and pay in cash at the store the day of. ⁠

⁠PRANKSTER PRESS WILL OFFER MORE SATURDAY BOOKBINDING WORKSHOPS IN FEBRUARY+ MARCH! They will be posted here, on Book Suey's Facebook and Eventbrite. ⁠
