Protective enclosures are made to support your books and to protect them from environmental damage. Additionally, for the artist they can serve as an extension of their book to enhance their presentation and provide another surface where one can customize the box to reflect the contents.
Learn to make three simple archival enclosures that enable you to store your books in an acid-free protective environment. We will make the archival phase box enclosure used by the Library of Congress, as an alternative to the clamshell box; a case wrapper with hard covers; and a self-closing wrapper. The class will cover the do’s and don’ts in conservation enclosures and materials, along with learning to measure for custom fit, creating jigs (a measurement-based template that aids in the construction process), appropriate adhesives, and other helpful hints. This class is perfect for the book artist, librarian and collector.
No experience necessary, just come with your books.
