Book of Hours: Pop-up Book Workshop

X

Description

Brightly coloured and decorated Books of Hours were popular in the Middle Ages and as a result, they are the most common type of surviving medieval illuminated manuscript. On this workshop we will make a pop-up version of one, imagining what it would be like if medieval scribes had paper engineering techniques available to them. A workshop for both beginners and experienced paper engineers alike. Tutor Information Paul Johnson is internationally recognised for his pioneering work in developing literacy through the book arts and as a book artist. He is the author of over 15 titles including A Book of One’s Own, Literacy Through the Book Arts and Pictures and Words Together. His unique pop-up books are represented in most major collections including the V&A, the Bodleian Library, Oxford, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, New York and the Library of Congress, Washington DC. In 2017 the BBC made a video about him and his work shown on The One Show. Earlier this year The Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore acquired over 500 items of his original work covering a fifty-year period.
