Primitive to Modern - Month 6


Month 6: Experiencing the Book as a New Structure

• hole punch, ¼" (most single hole punches are that size), 1 per person
• electric drill (cordless or with cord, either one), with ¼" and 1/8" drill bits, 1 per table
• xacto with several #11 blades (S417, S130)
• scissors
• metal ruler (S271)
• triangle (S613)
• cutting board
• grid pad (P21)
• glue stick (S391)
• newspapers, lots
• water bowls, 2 each (S848)
• cheap 1" housepainters brushes from hardware store, 2 each
• bone folder (S308)
• 2 sided tape, one roll each person
• removable tape, one roll each person (S699)

Everyone got a copy of the DVD with images of stained glass. We used them last time for our project and we will use them again this time for some of the pages for our book.
I would like for everyone to bring the following to class:
• 11" x 17": color copies, at least 5 different ones
• 11" x 17": B & W copies, at least 5 different ones
• 8 ½" x 11": B & W transparency, at least 3 different ones
In choosing which colors, visual patterns, etc., individuals may want to consider the quote. The quote we will be using for our text is, "The human heart is a theater of longing." I will have this printed out in various sizes and colors on different media so it would be difficult for people to substitute their own quote. Remindpeople this is purely for the sake of learning this technique, using different media, designing for a new book format.
It would help a great deal if you could get 100 manilla folders perhaps at Office Max, etc. We can factor that into the class materials fee.


S417. Excel Deluxe Knife (NonSlip)
Excel Deluxe Knife

It's time to upgrade. This American-made knife has a soft handle, a no-roll feature, much sharper blades, and best of all its PURPLE (or Black, Blue, Red). It's no more expensive than X-Acto's basic knife! Safety Cap, #11 Blade.

P21. JNB Graph Pad 11x17, 50 Sheets
JNB Graph Pad
Light blue grid (8 squares/inch). 24 lb bond. 11"x17". Approx. 50 sheets.

A non-bleeding paper that is great for calligraphy. (We use the same paper in our JNB Practice Pads.) Many instructors have their students use this pad in their classes.

(For graph with slant lines P01.)

Please choose color: Light or Dark.

Light: This grid does not show on many copiers, shows faintly on others, and usually disappears when you adjust the exposure one setting lighter. If you use a copier to produce your finished art for reproduction, this is the pad for you. This pad is good for jobs done at quick printers.

Dark: For classes, some students may appreciate a slightly darker grid. This is particularly true for adult classes. This is still a light blue grid. Some teachers have commented that their students found the original pad's grid was too light.
