In this four-week class Students will work together to create an edition of their own writing.  The class will serve as an excellent introduction to all phases of book production: writing, selecting and editing material, copy-editing, typography, book design, and hand bookbinding.  The instructor will also devote a session to bookmaking materials and alternate book structures. All students and levels of experience are welcome. Each student will leave with ten handbound chapbooks.

Maureen Cummins graduated from the Cooper Union School of Art, where she studied Calligraphy, bookmaking, and Graphic Design. After studying with printers and binders in California and New York, she set up a working printshop in Brooklyn NY. She has been making limited edition artist’s books for over twenty-five years.
