The Nag Hammadi is the oldest known codex-style book (as Michael Burke put it, “The clever fellow who discovered the fold.”). The original is made with papyrus and leather, with closure ties on the three open sides.
This smaller, contemporary reworking of the structure has pages of handmade, cotton rag paper; linen attachments; and is covered with a single piece of leather. A linen closure attached with decorative beads and buttons is braided from the center of the flap to close the book. Students may further embellish the edge of the leather closure flap as they see fit.
Materials to Bring: (Optional) Japanese hole punch (screw punch), scalpel (not an olfa—this is part of the materials fee, but feel free to bring your own if you have it).
Workshop + Materials Fee: $195.00
