Section: A

CRN: 3870

Credits: 3

In this class students will explore various ways that a visual narrative can be constructed within the physical framework of a book. Through a series of experimental drawing and collage processes, students will build sequential images that will be re-arranged in a book form. Drawing a reference from a wide range of visual narrative traditions from Japanese hand-scroll paintings to contemporary comics and artist’s books, students will explore how images relate to one another when placed in a sequential form and how a book structure can facilitate or complicate the overall flow of the narrative. Demos for various book structures will be given throughout the semester. Students will make either one-of-a-kind or small-edition books using digital printers such as Risograph, inkjet, or laser printers.
