Description – In this course we will use environmentally-friendly cyanotype printing processes to create photography books from digital negatives. Students will develop prints for the book from their own images. During the class we will cover shooting and editing images, book layout, making digital negatives, alternative photo printing and darkroom techniques, and simple bindings. If time and weather allows, we may even hit the streets to shoot a few shots.  All skill levels are welcome.

Students should bring to the class:

  • digital images for the book; bring files (jpg, tif or pdf files of good resolution) which will be printed out as negatives during class
  • three full sheets of BFK Rives
  • bookboard – .07 thickness *
  • several cheap brushes – foam is OK
  • half pint of PVA
  • bookcloth, thick paper is OK too

* BookWorks sells .072 bookboard (check supply) or you can order from Hollanders or Talas:
