Tutorial 2

In this episode we will learn how to produce a simple booklet with a soft cover at home.

Libri Finti Clandestini is an ironic* collective formed by the artists El Pacino (Milan, 1988-), Aniv Delarev (Pueblo Nuevo Solistahuacán, 1980-) and Yghor Kowalvsky (Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, 1985-).

The purpose of the collective is to create real books (sketchbooks, notebooks, travel diaries, object books) using only “paper found lying around”; paper that people consider to be garbage: paper scraps, printing tests, posters, envelopes, bread bags, wallpaper. This material is assembled and bound by hand; the end result is a real book, ready to be written in, drawn on or to take on any other meaning the owner wants to give it.

The collective is very active in the creation of contemporary artist’s books, and during this difficult period they offer online tutorials.
