In their bookbinding workshop, students in Marybeth Pacilio’s class are learning to make a simple accordion book out of envelopes and matte board. They are mixing their own wheat paste, which is an adhesive used since antiquity for bookbinding, among other things. They are also learning to use a bone folder: which is a simple folding tool used wherever sharp creases are needed.
