ART 446 Artists Books (4)

This course will consist of lectures, demonstrations, and studio practice in production of artists books. Lectures and demonstrations will include hand papermaking, signature binding, book design, new and alternative book forms, and container construction. Each student will produce six either unique or editioned books during the semester; each book will have a mock up, title, colophon page, and will be signed. This labor-intensive studio relies upon cumulative learning experiences through increasingly demanding projects. Competency is expected in numerous new skills and techniques, and their application in creating visually compelling concepts is essential to the success of completed artworks.
