Homework Due 2/28 (Thursday Class) and 3/5 (Tuesday Class)

For class six, please work on the following (materials for class 6 are listed at the bottom of this email):

  • One-page progress report + one rough mock up of book with text and graphics (see full midterm assignment sheet for more details).
  • Watch this short video on Art v. Craft (http://bit.ly/LZLh4m) and write a brief reaction to it on the blog. I want to see where you stand on the issue–how you define art, how you define craft, whether or not they can ever be the same thing, etc.

And, if you didn’t finish your text block prep in class, remember that you need the following (all folded “hamburger” style to give you a final text block dimension of 7″x5.5″). As a note, folio=sheet of paper.

  • Prep work for sewing signatures (fold enough paper to sew 4 books)
    • Single signature casebound dos-a-dos
      • 2 signatures of 8 folios each
    • Multiple signature casebound (full cloth/paper) with spine board
      • 6 signatures of 4 folios each.
    • Multiple signature casebound (quarter-cloth) without spine board
      • 6 signatures of 4 folios each.
    • Bradel bound (quarter-cloth) without spine board
      • 6 signatures of 4 folios each.

Materials for Class 6:

  • Needle
  • Awl
  • Waxed linen thread or, if you’re on the cheap, dental floss. (You will need 20-25 feet of either)
  • Ruler
  • Punching cradle
  • Cutting board (optional)
