In this workshop series we look at the history of books, how and why did books develop, how the invention of writing and drawing contributed to the expansion of our intelligence as species, what kind of materials were used to make books in the old days in different parts of the world. To learn about the history we visit museums, and then we try ourselves to make stone books, wooden books, papyrus books, parchment books, paper books, small books, large books, accordion books, elephant books, illustrated books, story books…

Took place at Werkstatt, Neues Museum, Naturkunde Museum.
