The book form can integrate a wide range of media and materials, bringing together image and text, structure and sequence in one moveable, touchable object. The book can find an individual place in each artist's work. In this class, we will concentrate on recognizing the book within your own work and making it real in your chosen media. Basic book structures and letterpress printing from handset type will be introduced and more advanced instruction will be tailored to individual needs. Open to beginning and advanced students from any discipline. May be repeated for additional credit.
