Introduction to Photo Book Design with Douglas Stockdale (Two sessions)

10:00 am - 6:00 pm
Intended for photographers preparing to transition their images to book form, this two-day workshop will teach students creative and practical approaches to photo book design.
After a morning of studying limited edition artists’ books, trade books and zines, the remainder of the first session will be spent understanding students’ publishing objectives and how that translates to a book object. This will include time discussing the elements of book design and the purpose of a book-dummy, concluding with a hands-on fabrication of a saddle-stitch dummy book/zine. The second session will start with a group critique of the each participants book dummy that was developed in the week between classes followed by a discussion of the business elements of (self) publishing a photo book. The remainder of the day students will work as teams on the development of a dummy book as a collaborative project.
Throughout the process, Douglas Stockdale will work with each student to develop his/her approach to the challenge of working through a book design. By the workshop’s conclusion, participants will add to their publishing vocabulary and walk away with some book dummy’s that meet their creative needs.
Please bring 20 to 60 physical prints (not digital files), no larger than 5×7 (copy machine prints are acceptable). A complete list of supplies necessary for the workshop will be provided about a week before the course begins.
