2019-2020 Undergraduate Academic Catalog

IPHOT 3130 Artist's Books

Bringing together majors throughout the college this class will expand upon basic book binding skills to explore new methods of presentation that go beyond conventional techniques of traditional book design and structure. Students will engage in a variety of unusual contemporary practices, such as cut paper, cutting-edge textiles, text & image, and advanced 3-D objects. Students will create work generated by their individual projects, which will investigate conceptually based ideas, embracing alternative materials that challenge the very concept of the book. This studio class will be comprised of demonstrations, critique, survey and field trips to studios, galleries and permanent collections.
