The Naked Book: Casebound Without Cloth @ Book Arts Studio, J. Willard Marriott Library, level 4

Turn a hardbound book into an artist’s canvas with bookbinder and conservator, Chris McAfee. Make a cover for a pre-sewn text block and finish it – not with cloth, paper, or leather – but with acrylic modeling paste. Then texture, scribe, and wax the covers to create a personal design. While spinning traditional techniques into innovative processes, investigate how bookbinding materials react to moisture and how to counteract related problems.
