Create an edition of ex-libris bookplates; small decorative labels which are pasted inside a book's cover to confirm ownership. If you have books and loan this is a perfect way of ensuring that they come home to you. Originating in 16th-century Germany bookplates have become highly individualized and distinctive. Create one with your name or make one for a friend.
Add personal design elements depending on:
- Your occupation
- Your garden
- Imagined characters
In this 3 hour workshop you will create a small photopolymer plate from your black and white drawing or digital type or design. The plate will be printed in relief to create a set of multiples.
