Writers and artists have used the pamphlet style of binding since the Middle Ages. In this workshop, participants will learn how to make a Pamphlet Binding with Boards.

Some participants might want to leave the text pages blank, while others might want to create a graphic novel, comic book, short story, artist’s book, alphabet book, memorial book, or a one-act play. It’s all possible, so long as it fits into 16 pages with a format size of 5” x 7”.
