Making models has become an important part of my studio practice. It gives me a platform to examine specific engineering aspects of the book, or fill in the blanks in my education. My research and experimentation through the creation of models often becomes the foundation of a workshop. I began my exploration of paper cases and sewn-through wrappers when I realized I knew many artists’ book structures based on the pamphlet and accordion fold, and I could make a fancy full leather binding, but I was not at all knowledgeable about all the possibilities that lay in between.
