An opportunity to explore further the integration of type and image making in unique and editioned
book structures. Continued hands-on experience in dealing with composition (metal) type and
computer typesetting on an advanced level. Relief printing, photopolymer plates, color reduction
printing, and related traditional and contemporary methods of multiple image making may
be pursued. Special emphasis on development of a personal visual language. Students will be
expected to design a personal book project rather than fulfill assignments. They will also
