This month's Guild meeting will feature a classic accordion Flag Book. This dynamic structure, inspired by Hedi Kyle, Susan King, and others, is a fun and versatile way to incorporate a series of images, texts, photos, or collected objects in your artist books. We will look at some simple and complex examples and make a sample flag book from recycled file folders, card stock, and images from old research manuals given to the Guild by the Ichthyology Department at the Museum. Materials for the covers, accordion support, flags, and fish images will be provided.
