Make an Artist’s Book Using Leporello Binding with Elizabeth Ogle

August 18, 2020 @ 1:00 pm 3:00 pm

Tuesdays, August 18 and 25 from 1 – 3 p.m. on Zoom

Join book artist and illustrator Elizabeth Ogle to create and decorate a concertina book using the Leporello binding style. This unusual binding is created by attaching folded page spreads back-to-back to create a continuous accordion shape. Over the course of two sessions, attendees will create and decorate a hard-cover artist’s book of their own. Previous bookmaking experience is recommended but not required.

Elizabeth Ogle is a professional freelance illustrator and book artist. She holds a BFA in illustration with a minor in creative writing from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, where she was a recipient of the Illustration Departmental Honors and the Illustration Faculty Choice Award. She has held two teaching assistantships, one in introductory drawing, and one in book arts. Her work has been featured in the November 2019 issue of Artists Magazine and has been exhibited at the Portland Museum of Art, Boston Symphony Hall, and various galleries.

Cost: $72; $60 museum members
This program will take place on Zoom.
