Learn about bookmaking opportunities beyond what the Guild offers in Fairbanks. We will let you know about upcoming workshops and other events that intrigue and inspire us!

On Display at UAF Rasmuson Library:
These little books are more art objects than functional books, although they can be both.  The spotlight of the binding is on the spine where the texture of colored threads woven back and forth provides a background for clusters of beads and other objects. Each book has a distinct personality determined by choices of papers, palette, and embellishments.
All books on loan from participants of Woven Spine Workshop,
UAF WINTERmester 2018, instructed by Margo Klass

Origami Poems Project

The Origami Poems Project publishes microchaps of poems formatted on a single sheet of paper. The paper folds origami-style (using what NBG refers to as the French Fold structure) into palm-sized books. Download each microchap (at no charge) from the website. Alaska’s own Emily Wall has two microchaps on the site. More information about the project, printing and folding the book, and subscribing to their newsletters here.

Something new: Dwarsliggers!
Discover these tiny pocket-sized flipback books – they are the size of a cellphone and no thicker than your thumb, with paper as thin as onion skin. They can be read with one hand – the text flows horizontally, and you can flip the pages upward, like swiping a smartphone.  Read all about them here.
