Building the Contemporary Book

Students will develop a strong working knowledge of the tools and materials used in contemporary bookbinding while learning how to integrate structure with content in the development of their own one-of-a-kind artists' books. We will move from simple non-adhesive structures through various hardcover bindings and on to innovative three-dimensional book forms. Students will use various binding methods and simple mark-making methods to explore the structure and content of artists' books.
Offered every other year beginning 2014-15.
