(CA) Presentation Album with Michael Burke

A great class for beginners, this album can also be made on the kitchen table with a few tools.

The Presentation Album was developed as an answer to a question: how to create a simple album which can house photographs in an elegant embossed page without swelling the book. It’s a great class for artists and photographers who want to display their work in a beautiful, hand-made book.

The album is very handsome, with pages made from quality cardstock. Each page has an impressed panel to house the photographs, made using an ingenious technique which is far simpler than you could imagine. The finished panels resemble the impression of an etching plate. The pages are hinged together on the inside with thick paper strips, and a small amount of adhesive is all that’s needed to hold it all together—no need for sewing at all! The album has cloth joints for strength and an attractive cloth cover, and like the Ideal Sketchbook, opens beautifully flat.

This is Dominic and Michael’s favorite album, and as an added bonus, students will learn how they can eliminate one of the steps and create a concertina instead, ideal for constructing an album suitable for display.
