What is a flush mount style album? A flush mount style album is an album where image layouts are created digitally and are printed directly to the album pages in spreads (two facing pages). These spreads are folded (images facing in) and adhered together, with or without a page stiffener, to create the album block.
When: Early Spring 2010
Where: Virginia Beach, Virginia
Presented by: Jacqueline Poutasse, TJPhoto and Book Arts, LLC
Investment : The cost of the two day flush mount album and box making workshop and retreat is $395 per person and includes a spiral bound manual, all materials needed (except photo spreads) as well as lunch and drinks both days. The workshop fee also includes email and phone support after the workshop for as long as you need it as well as access to a private forum where you can share notes, ask questions and chat with your fellow classmates.
Who is this workshop for? : This workshop is for working
photographers who are interested in creating their own albums so that they
may offer a unique product to their clients, as well as binders looking to
add an additional service to their bindery that would benefit photographers
in their area. Flush mount style albums are also a great way for artists to
present their work when submitting portfolios to prospective clients.
What will I learn? : The emphasis of this class will be on learning how to make your own unique custom albums with a minimal amount of equipment. No prior bookmaking experience is required.
Do I need to bring anything? : Students will need to provide their own photo spreads. Details will be included with the registration information that will be sent out three weeks prior to the workshop. *Please note that bookbinders wanting to take the workshop may use blank pages as a substitute for the printed spreads.
This is a great opportunity to learn how to make flush mount style albums as there is little information available on creating these books.
