Credits: 3

In this Printmaking course, students will learn the craft and conceptual foundations of bookbinding and artists’ books. The course begins with an introduction to materials, form, binding and printing techniques, as well as conversations about and explorations of the book as an art form. Throughout the semester, students will bind several sample books, set type for letterpress printing, experiment with a range of techniques for getting images and text into artist books, look at and discuss contemporary artist books and practices, and begin to develop their visual work in the artist book form. The final project in the class will be an independent book project in which students synthesize their knowledge of materials and form with the development of a conceptual book idea. This course will also have some readings and visits to see artists’ books collections.
