This class focuses on the creative and structural development of artists' books. The course addresses structural, technical, conceptual and experimental issues in making books as art. Some assignments focus on traditional practices, and some assignments pose conceptual and experimental questions. Tutorials will be provided for making a variety of structural forms including: pamphlet stitch, stab-binding, accordion fold and Romanesque Braid. We will address issues of sequential imagery, narrative, and the relationships between text and image and structure, and we will look at contemporary practices and innovations in book design as well as historical references. This course addresses issues and skills that are relevant to sculptors, painters, printmakers, photographers, designers, writers, installation artists, and many other fields as there is a wide range of approaches, subjects, and media possible.
