Course Description

BOOK 284
Books as Multiples: Publishing on the letterpress
Spring

What is the connection between content and its physical form? How does meaning shift when its form changes? What does it mean to publish a book? How are form and content linked in your own work? In this class students will produce books in editions (multiples) in the letterpress studio as we investigate the ways text, image, and print come together in traditional and contemporary books. We will examine the history of print technologies, look at the work of today’s independent publishers, and explore the future of the book. Field trips, guest artists, and workshops will be included.
