Education Day

This fall, 2 ⁄ edition is proud to launch Binding Ideas and Images — a new program dedicated to introducing self-publishing to university, college and high school students.

Partnering with Ryerson University School of Image Arts, Education Day will connect Toronto bookbinder Don Taylor with students to create their very own photobook on site over the course of a 4 hr work session.

The breakdown of the day will consist of two working stations:

STATION 1: An Introduction to Photography Books Photographer and Bookmaker Christopher Manson will share a spectrum of photobooks dating back 150-yrs with students as a way to show the possibilities and spark their own ideas.

STATION 2: Book Binding Bookbinder Don Taylor will introduce numerous book binding methods in order to help you make your own hand crafted book. Final books will consist of 12 pages (single or double-sided, portrait of landscape oriented) and be hand-sewn using traditional Japanese stab binding techniques.

Important: there is only room for 12 students. The sign up will be on a first come first served basis. Each student will be responsible for bringing in their images, printed and ready to be bound.
