Asian books differ from Western books in looks, paper types, binding techniques, and usage. In this course, you will make books in rice and mulberry papers using traditional techniques, such as stab binding (more known as Japanese binding) and Japanese accordion binding. You will also use techniques to modify or embellish otherwise Western books to give them an attractive Asian look. Please bring your own X-Acto knife or Olfa type cutter. If you would like to give a personal look to your books, you could bring your own Asian decorative paper and embellishments (Japanese paper is easily available), but it is not required. Any questions, I will be happy to answer.
