Patrick LE BESCONT

REALIZE A BOOK
This four-day course will tackle every aspect of making a photography book. By the time it’s over, participants will have created their own based on images, photographs, texts, etc. that they bring with them and on the extensive experience of Patrick Le Bescont, the director of Filigranes Éditions, whose catalogue includes nearly 600 artists’ books.

At first, the course will focus on editing, layout and the relationship between text and image. Then, participants will choose a binding (hardcover, blind blocking, postal book, Chinese binding), type of paper (rag, bible, rhodoid, adhesive, etc.) and printing method (phototype, offset, photographic prints, etc.).
Reflection and experimentation will eventually lead them to the right combination of visual and textual languages, forming the backbone of the book’s architecture.
Photography will be at the heart of the process, but there will also be a technical component: participants will learn how to make a dummy using layout software. Based on exploring already existing publications, these steps will touch on typography, binding, composition, etc.
