Complete a Magister’s requirements for Bookbinding.
I have decided.
Here is what I shall do for this:
Teach classes in the following – Coptic codices, Byzantine codices, Persian bindings, gothic bindings, Carolingian bindings (I might replace the gothic bindings with limp bindings, as it is easier). These classes will need to take a full day each).
Submit a paper on something. I have not decided what yet, but it will be awesome. Perhaps on, I dunno, preservation? I’ll have to look at examples to figure this out.
The master project will be a fully gilded Persian book. I am expecting it to take quite a while (did I mention that Persian books are case-bound with pasteboard? I don’t have to saw/drill anything! Hooray!).
Time to start focusing on the Static Arts. It’s a good thing that I’m going to RUM this year.
