Workshop participants will be given the necessary tools and insight to become editor-in-chief of their own publication. The class will cover the varied contemporary publishing ‘models,’ from the zine to the traditional perfect-bound photography book. Editing, sequencing, and design will be discussed both theoretically and practically. The class will also cover distribution and marketing options for finished titles. Each participant will present his/her own book project to the class and then realize their project using Adobe In-Design or other publishing software. The workshop will end with the presentation of the newly designed photography books.
