In this one-day class, students will learn to construct a Drum Leaf binding, also called a Tipped-Folio binding. This all-adhesive structure involves 'tipping' individual leaves together to create the book. Drum Leaf binding is perfect for turning single sided media including digital prints, photographs, letterpress prints, and artwork made with other processes into an elegant double sided book structure. Working from a provided materials kit, students will construct a 5 x 7 Drum Leaf binding as well as learning strategies for applying the process to different types of single sided media. Students will learn text-block construction, cover-making and the process of putting it all together.
