The Printmakers' Book with Stephanie Wolff: Drumleaf and Flutter Bindings at Two Rivers Printmaking Studio, White River Junction, VT Printmakers’ traditionally create images on one side of a sheet of paper leaving the reverse blank. Both these bindings, the drum leaf and the flutter, make use of that attribute. Similar to a children’s board book, each pager spread is a single sheet of paper folded in the center with the reverse side hidden when bound. We will make blank books of both bindings, each with a soft cover. We will use a jig to help with proper alignment, and discuss materials, paper grain, and cover alternatives. Participants may bring their own prints or drawings to be used as a cover on one book. A paper anywhere between 90 – 250 lb. weight should work with a paper size of 11 “ or larger in each dimension, but feel free to bring larger sheets as well, as we can cut these down.
