During Calvin College’s three-week January Interim, students in professor Anna Greidanus’ class immersed themselves in the art of handmade artist books. Entitled “Folio, Image, Space, Text and Time,” the course helped students acquire various binding techniques and allowed them to explore handmade books as an art form.
