Participants will learn basic structures and mounting types for planning/designing a substantial photo album project which may involve real photos of a variety of historical types. Exercises will give you a set of practical models to take home for further study, including the design of blank leaves, sewing them into a book, a slip-on album cover, larger leaves which mount multiple photos of varying sizes on both sides of the leaves. Also included – discussing problems, design and structural concerns with albums.
