During this very intensive weekend workshop meeting you will review and evaluate your project with Martin Kollar, reshape your existing dummy book, or make a new one from scratch. Depending on how advanced is your project, the resulting edit may be used directly for contacting publishers. The artist will share his knowledge about the process and provide you with further instructions and guidance.

During the two days in Bratislava you will meet and work at Martin Kollar’s home studio.
