BOOK 336 Advanced Book Arts: Concepts and Structures

1.5 credits 45.0 hours
300 level undergraduate course

Because Artists’ Books function as an “alternative space,” one can examine contemporary, historical, and independent approaches to the printed page and how it represents itself in ways different to painting, sculpture or film. Students will continue to explore the potential of letterpress and other printmaking processes while considering the books structure as an integral part of the process. Emphasis will be on edition work, one of a kind and collaborative book works. Consideration is placed on pace and development of information, in relation to the viewers’ hand. Manipulating word and image in unconventional ways as inventive departures from existing means of describing reality.
