On November 4, 2017 the Society for Calligraphy & Handwriting (SCH) will be sponsoring the workshop, “Moving Steps Book” with Elsi Vassdal Ellis in Renton, WA.

In this workshop we will make a Moving Steps book. This book structure comes from a direct mail solution for an HP promotion. We will examine through model-making the impact of paper weight, page width, and grain direction and explore various creative options.

Elsi Vassdal Ellis has been a practicing book artist for over 30 years. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally and is housed in many public and private collections. Since 1983 she has produced over 133 editions and 127 unique books employing a variety of reproduction techniques and materials.
