Discover the importance of producing a photography book in an exclusive 4-day Book Making workshop with celebrated photographer, Ralph Gibson, at Leica Store Los Angeles from January 18-21, 2019.

This 4-day workshop will deal with all aspects of the book making process. The class will focus on the book “dummy” as an object in and of itself. Aspects of layout, design, double-page spreads, book cover impact and editorial thrust as well as binding, typography, separation for plate-making, distribution formulas and more will be addressed.

To date, Ralph Gibson has produced more than 50 books in this manner. The computer has vastly enhanced the process of book making and production and he strongly believes that these are the golden years of the photography book.

Workshop participants will have the opportunity to view two books by Ralph Gibson and their hand-made dummies, created via this same process. Ralph’s position has always been that an accurate facsimile of the book intended for publication is the optimum approach.
