IPHOT 3750 Photographic Books

This course is intended for advanced photography students who wish to develop their photographic work into the book format. We will focus on two distinct kinds of books incorporating photography: limited edition photographic books and artists' books. The former focuses on presenting a body of photographs in sequence, with an emphasis on high production value. The latter is a genre in which the "bookness" of the object is particularly important, usually with emphasis on the relation between the concept of the book and the physical structure created.
