Bookmaking Investigations

June 30, 2020

“A pdf doesn’t do this…” is a signature phrase of renowned Dutch book designer Irma Boom. It was the premise for Bookbinding Investigations, an exhibit & workshop curated and led by VCFA MFA in Graphic Design alumnx Sondra Graff at FIT.

Sondra believes that books celebrate the human experience. “They are tactile, they are tangible. Bookmaking takes us to a deeper conceptual, more expressive and personal level.”

Students across many majors, faculty members and staff participated. Several of them had striking bookbinding projects on display.

The event was made possible with generous assistance from Graphic Design Students and Faculty.
