Wire-bound hindges.

While working on a wire-bound construction for a traveling cube, a reminder for the Garage Annex School's workshop calender was sent to my email. The Garage Annex School (GAS) is a book arts resource founded in 1990 by Daniel Kelm. Kelm is a binder who has developed a lovely method of wire-binding as a means for creating non-traditional book formats. I came in contact with Kelm's work when Smith College hosted the exhibit Poetic Science as part of the Museums 10 BookMarks celebration. On the Poetic Science website there are many images, and a few short films, showing his alchemical methods and talented craftsmanship. Though I cannot attend the August workshop on wire-binding, I will be using this site for trouble-shooting visual hints.
