The flag book is an exciting structure that offers budding book artists myriad possibilities of content and design. It consists of a simple accordion-folded spine with pages called flags which may be decorated and arranged in unique ways to create a kinetic experience for the viewer. During the workshop, participants will create their own flag book model while exploring the basics of bookmaking. This will also be a special opportunity to work in the E. Martin and Ethel Wunsch Conservation Laboratory, and learn about the Libraries' efforts to preserve MIT's unique and varied collections. We will provide all materials, including a selection of decorative papers. Bring your ideas and enthusiasm!
