ARTIST'S BOOK WORKSHOP with Nico Baumgarten (Germany)
During this 5-day workshop, the participants transformed a series of previously created artworks - be it photography, illustration, graphic art, written word or any other medium - into a handmade artist book. The idea behind was to find a smart translation of work into a creative paper-based object and learn the skills necessary to execute that transformation.
