Book Art, Book Illustration and Calligraphy

Book Art

Book Art, including book and document repair, as well as traditional binding, is alive and flourishing at RACC. We offer a range of courses in a well-established and uniquely equipped department that has been running successfully since 1987. All grades of learner are welcome, from beginners through to professionals, who can all enjoy the specialist facilities, experienced tuition and relaxed workshop environment the college has to offer.

Book Illustration

If you are more interested in illustration, we have courses in children’s book illustration, in which you will be encouraged to develop your imagination and personal visual language through the use of technique and style. Or you could develop your digital image-making skills by embarking on a course in Adobe Illustrator…

Calligraphy

We also offer specialist courses in the ancient art of Calligraphy and Lettering for all levels, from beginners through to those wanting to refresh and refine their existing skills in rendering Roman and Italics, and develop their creativity in this area. Your experienced tutor will introduce you to historic and contemporary examples of letterforms to provide a contextual understanding of this unique art form.
