One page zine

As part of my bookmaking class we made one page zines, which are great because they’re super simple, you just cut once in the middle.  If you ever feel like making one you can collage, draw, and reproduce with a photocopier.  I made this one thinking about different ways of communicating and connecting.  The hand shapes spell ‘friend’ in American Sign Language.  It’s free for you to print and fold yourself!

The art of bookmaking

I’ve started a continuing ed class at Emily Carr all about the basics of bookmaking.  Our first assignment was a one page, one cut ‘zine, and in our second class we made a 4 punch book with Japanese calligraphy paper.  I’m pretty in love with this class, and have a feeling that once it’s over I’ll be incorporating bookmaking into my art making practice.
