Book Arts Events in the CCAD Packard Library

From Chris Mannix, Instruction Librarian at Columbus College of Art & Design:

CCAD Packard Library recently hosted two book arts events. The first was “Focus on Folding: Making an Accordion Book” held on Saturday, October 10, 2015. CCAD rare books librarian and book artist Christine Mannix spoke to participants about paper grain and folding methods, and the group examined a variety accordion books from the CCAD artists’ book collection.

Then we set to work! Everyone had a great time and is eager for the next workshop in November when we’ll be making a flat reverse piano hinge book.

The following Monday, October 12, Alicia Bailey of Abecedarian Gallery in Denver paid us a visit with a selection of artists’ books for hands-on viewing. The Advanced Printmaking class came over from Kinney Hall during class time to check them out, and judging from the conversation, the books will be inspiring all kinds of fun projects. We purchased Brian Kring’s Sea Monster for our collection since it was a favorite with students. Thank you to Alicia Bailey for stopping by!
