Library EventTry This: Recover an Ugly Book

Thursday, June 20, 2024 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

06/20/2024 6:30pm 06/20/2024 8:00pm Try This: Recover an Ugly Book

Bring in a couple of your paperback books with misleading or unpleasant cover designs, and we'll create custom book jackets!

After measuring your book, we'll use Canva to make a template you can fill with their clip art, background images you find online, or your own photos. With text boxes on the cover and spine, your printed jacket will look fantastic. Optional: equipment for gold embossing (a marker, embossing powder, and heat gun) will be available if you want to add some shine to your book jacket.

Supplies will be provided, but you're welcome to find online images you'd like to use beforehand.  The higher the resolution the better.

Please register, as space is limited.

Instructors: Candice and Stacey

TRY THIS: Let us pique your curiosity with an array of fun activities and enriching experiences for adults this summer. See the other Try This workshops!
