What are some conceptual building blocks for artists' books? How do form and content interact in their creation? By what critical standards are they judged? To explore these questions students will create their own artists' books. We will read from literature, visual studies, and the history and practice of bookmaking, and curate small exhibitions to document concepts and working methods of contemporary book artists as an exploration of current professional practice.
Offered every other year beginning 2017-18.
Limit twelve students.
Open to sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students.
