Old Books Renewed: Nag Hamadi Notebook & Late Coptic Sketchbook
Old Books Renewed: Nag Hamadi Notebook & Late Coptic Sketchbook
2015

In this workshop we will create sketchbooks and journals based on historic examples of the earliest book structures. The Nag Hamadi bindings housed the Gnostic Gospels, found in a cave in Egypt in 1945. It contains a folded set of pages covered by a stiff leather cover. The book will include a ties at the top and bottom and a flap at the opening to protect your notes and sketches. Our second book includes multiple sets of pages are sewn together with a linking stitch, then covered with thin material to make a sturdy notebook that opens well.

This workshop runs 12 hours.
