Sunny Florida Atlantic U. Class in Carousel Books

A bright Memorial Day weekend in Boca Raton, Florida, found nine dedicated students hard at work in my FAU class on how to construct a carousel book. Students prepared all the materials, folded three accordions, designed imagery and creative content across the layered pages, then learned how to assemble the parts into finished pieces and attach the covers. Most of the students chose to delay final assembly until they had worked more on the content at home, but a few managed to complete their books in class.

The class was held in conjunction with an exhibition of pop-up books from the Arthur J. Williams collection, coordinated through the Jaffe Center for Book Arts, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, Florida.
