Hidden and Revealed explores the interactive qualities of a book: what is hidden and what is revealed at the turn of a page. We’ll create three bindings that incorporate pockets, flaps, windows, multiple transparent layers, and more! Zoom in on particular parts of images, bury information in layers of transparencies, and discover unexpected combinations as you look through, within, and under the pages of your books. Bindings include concertina with envelopes, accordion with pockets and the Hedi Kyle storage book with windows. This class is open to all levels, though some basic folding and binding experience is preferred.

Macy Chadwick received an MFA in Book Arts and Printmaking from The University of the Arts in Philadelphia and assisted book artist Julie Chen at Flying Fish Press for three years. She currently resides in Oakland, California, where she creates books and limited edition prints in her letterpress studio. Macy is on the faculty at the Academy of Art University, San Francisco, and her work is in prominent collections in the U.S. and abroad, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Yale University Special Collections, and the Jack Ginsberg Collection in South Africa.
