Developed by renowned book artist Hedi Kyle, storage books are an innovative and utilitarian book structure with an expandable spine and mylar windows cut into the pages. The windows allow for objects to be inserted without appearing bulky, and objects are protected indefinitely but can be removed without causing damage. This structure has amazing potential for an artist's book, memory book, or preservation of ephemera. Tuition includes a kit with essential materials that will need to be picked up at SSA; for other items needed please see SSA website for a materials list. Please register by Sep 28.

From 17th century letterpress printed broadsides to contemporary zines, artists, and activists have been using the printed word and book format to communicate information and encourage social engagement for a broader community. Each week we will view and discuss existing artists' books and prints and learn methods to create one's own. Students will learn printing and book art techniques that focus on accessibility, low-cost, creating multiples, and ease of distribution. See SSA website for a materials list. Please register by Sep 28.
