A Promenade Through Paris, Kelley Voegelin May 2005

A Promenade Through Paris, Kelley Voegelin

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

I have written and illustrated a short story that takes place during one day in Paris, France. The story is drawn from my own experience living in another culture. I have created a main character that brings the reader through the story. Along the way the reader visits wonderful places in the city of Paris and learns snippets about Parisian culture and lifestyle.

The text and artwork themselves appear in a book that I have made by hand. I began by inventing a unique paper of a cotton base, lilies, cattails, and other starchy plants. At the end of the ...

On Earth, Laura Mariposa Williams

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

When Junior year arrived, along with the opportunity to start a thesis project, Kristina Foley and I agreed that this was right opportunity for us to create a body of collaborative art works. From there we decided to present our final works at Spark Gallery. Our show, On Earth, is a collection of works in varying media. Overall, we have three videos, two narrative, photographic series, two mural photographs, a driftwood sculpture, felted pelts and photographic frames, a book of poetry and drawings held in knitted pouches, and a shadow cloth mural.

What does it mean to be working in ...


Good Society, Lindsay Dedario May 2005

Good Society, Lindsay Dedario

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

My senior honors thesis is an illustrated book which renders various snapshots of people and events encountered while I was living and volunteering in Ecuador during the summer of 2004. Each snapshot brings to life some aspect of the human condition which transcends the boundaries of culture, qualities which are intrinsic to humanity despite our vast surface value differences.

I used a fairly tight, lyrical voice combined with a borderline journalistic approach to textually communicate each snapshot. This is not intended to over romanticize the piece or to ignore the fact that this society had problems like all others. Rather ...


Through Doors: Every Door Takes You Someplace Completely New, Gareth Manwaring May 2005

Through Doors: Every Door Takes You Someplace Completely New, Gareth Manwaring

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

Through Doors is a 30-minute experimental action-adventure fiction film. The film is fueled by the premise: “What if every door you walked through took you someplace completely different?” It was shot in Syracuse, New York, with collaborations between the community and students at Syracuse University. The sound track was composed by local artists Joe Driscoll, Ryan Zara and Gregg Yetti. Through Doors was shot using the Panasonic DVX100 24p camera which gave the final piece the look of film, even though it was shot in a digital format. Through Doors is a work of art for entertainment purposes as well ...

On Earth, Kristina Foley

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

My thesis project is structured around a friendship that grew into an artistic collaboration. Laura Williams and myself, Kristina Foley, pulled our resources and concepts together from two seemingly disparate fields of art, Fiber Structure and Interlocking and the Media Art Program, to explore our personal identification with Feminism, magic, and the role of art in illustrating history through revealing perspectives often kept hidden. Using fibers and textile pieces we explore a women’s history that has been kept private and held close to the body, while simultaneously using video and photography to re-imagine how the female is projected into ...


A Place Apart: Myth And Sacred Space, Diana Hazel May 2005

A Place Apart: Myth And Sacred Space, Diana Hazel

Syracuse University Honors Program Capstone Projects

“When old myths are lost, new ones are needed. Myths flourish and fade and die, but new myths are born, old ones are resurrected, and hybrid forms combining new and old emerge when times change or cultures mingle” (Graves: 1959, 9).

The original concept of this project was to create a CD-ROM database of mythology from various cultures and time periods throughout history. The first few months of my work were carried out with this end in mind. Since then, the project has taken a more personal turn. Instead of presenting the mythologies of other people, I have created my ...

Millimeter Binding / Edelpappband, Peter D. Verheyen Jan 2005

Millimeter Binding / Edelpappband, Peter D. Verheyen

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

What we call the “millimeter” binding in North America is a “nobler” version of the German “pappband,” or paper binding, hence the name “edelpappband.” The technique is based on the German case (Bradel) binding which is covered in paper. What distinguishes the technique is that cloth, leather, or vellum trim is added to the head and tail, foredges, and/or corners for greater durability, making the book more elegant at the same time. This article describes how to complete a binding using this technique.


Springback Ledger Bindings, Peter D. Verheyen Jan 2005

Springback Ledger Bindings, Peter D. Verheyen

Libraries' and Librarians' Publications

During his introduction, Richard Baker described how, while Deputy Head of the Conservation Bindery of the Johns Hopkins University Library'he was introduced to the springback binding. The historical development of the springback, originally patented in Great Britain in 1799 by John and Joseph Williams, is described in Bernard Middleton's History of English Craft Bookbinding, but Middleton does not detail the steps required to complete a binding. The springbackalso has a long history in the German binding tradition, where it continues to see regular use, especially for guestbooks. As a style, the springback is firmly rooted in the "trade ...
