ASMP NY Skillshare: So You Want To Make A Book
This workshop is for anyone interested in taking a book project from idea to prototype. Michael McWeeney will go through the steps of creating a book dummy; including concept, editing, sequencing, and design, and help participants decide on making a vanity book, zine, or multipage mailer.
"I worked with Michael McWeeney. He was very helpful in helping to select the images, and we worked together on sequencing. As my theme 'Now You Can Take My Picture' developed, it made the book much more cohesive, not just favorite photos stuck together. This has been a rewarding experience."
