Meet the Instructor
Walter Tisdale lives and works in Bangor. He has made books in collaboration with writers & artists, since 1979. He believes strongly that the books he prints & publish design themselves, given the collaborative nature of the work. Serendipity also has a playful role in his bookmaking.
Class space is limited to 15.
