Debra brings back her popular bookmaking classes in a special three-part series. In June, work on Flag Books - a kinetic book whose parts move in separate flags as you page through. July brings Tunnel Books, which draw the reader into a three-dimensional story, and August finishes with Fireworks Books: a bibliotechnical bang which contains a popup structure of repeated forms that unfold from all sides. Bring your work back to the Camera for second Saturday craft lounges and continue your experiments in bookmaking.Find out more »
