Exciting opportunity to take a one-day workshop with internationally acclaimed artists Peter & Donna Thomas - NESTED ACCORDION POP-UP BOOK & THE SCROLLING CODEX.  The workshop will take place on Saturday, March 9, 2013 at Gorgas Library on the campus of the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and is open to the public.  Limited space is available so register early to ensure your spot in the class.

Please see the attached PDF flier for more details, including registration information.

Peter & Donna Thomas are book artists, papermakers, and letterpress printers who write, illustrate, and bind their own books. They are also authors of More Making Books by Hand and 1,000 Artists' Books. Based in Santa Cruz, California, they are currently traveling around the USA in their Gypsy Wagon (they think of it as a traveling artists' book) teaching classes, giving lectures, and selling books. Since 1976, Peter & Donna Thomas have worked collaboratively and individually, making paper, letterpress printing, and book binding, to create books. Their books have been shown in individual and group exhibitions in the USA and abroad, and have been purchased for collections around the world.

Investigate the artist's book through innovative book structures that have been developed and explored in depth by the instructors. Participants will make two of the artist book structures described in the Thomas' book More Making Books By Hand published in 2004 by Quarry/Rockport Publishers. 

Please share this upcoming opportunity with your colleagues and students.
