Wow! After 244 years the Encyclopedia Britannica is ceasing to print. Coincident or not, this weekend I am flying up to Seattle to teach a workshop to high school students in The AIGA Link Program, using out-of-date encyclopedias to create new book structures. Perhaps it's a simple reminder of how interesting altered books can be, particularly when they involve uncovering layers of hidden meanings.
I am absolutely looking forward to seeing what the students come up with and can't think of a better time than now to transform a dusty old book into something treasured and new.
Wish us luck!
