Bindery for the N3wb
I taught a little zine-making workshop at a small convention on the East Coast whose name I have forgotten. Which is too bad because it was a fun show, the show runners were super nice and helpful. The original was made as a slit-8 style zine and the people at the workshop got a copy that was still a flat sheet so they got to make it themselves.

People to keep an eye on, at least at the time I wrote this.
- Beth Hetland (I was her and Luke Howard’s TA for a CCS Cartoon Studio summer workshop and we taught an extra evening class specifically on cool binding techniques.)
- Jon Chad (He and Luke Howard taught Publication Workshop when I attended The Center for Cartoon Studies.)
- Anita Boyle (Okay, so she’s my mom. I’d have to include her skills in a list like this, right?)
- Sarah Smith, Book Arts Special Instructor, Dartmouth (While attending CCS, we got to take a class on bookmaking at Dartmouth. She was a great instructor. We got to make a letterpress broadside where each of us got to lay out the text for a single line. I have it somewhere.)
