Community Bookmaking Workshop 

When: Sat., Dec. 13, 12-4 p.m. 2014
Price: $10 per book
"Bookmaking?" We know what you're thinking, and no, this isn't a workshop acquainting you with the ins and outs of cheating gamblers out of their money. From noon-4 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 13, Boise Art Museum is hosting a workshop that teaches the fading discipline of building and binding actual books. Dating back to a time when literacy was far from universal, the bookmaking craft combined expertise in paper, stitching and artwork, and was used to create exquisite works of art complementing the fictional, critical and legal texts they bound. Allow an hour in the workshop for every book you wish to make.
