As part of the CCC:EED project we have recently digitised a handmade book from the NRCD’s collection of Laban materials and artwork.
The book entitled ‘6 Stages of a Book’ was made by a group of Laban’s students and friends on the occasion of his 60th birthday. The book’s illustrations show Laban pondering the creation of a book, with each of his movements accompanied by notation.
Project assistant Mike Reed will also be digitising a range of other previously unseen Laban materials including his personal holiday drawings and human anatomical diagrams.
