Every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the information contained in this Columbia College Chicago Catalog; however, the Catalog is not a contract but rather a guide for the convenience of students. Columbia College Chicago reserves the right to change or withdraw courses; to change the fees, rules, and calendar for admission, registration, instruction, and graduation; and to change any of its policies or other provisions listed in the Catalog at any time.
This course begins with a brief history of bookmaking, publication presses, and critique of book classifications. Students focus on the relationship of content to layout and book cover design by examining the unifying elements of type, photos, illustrations, and other graphic devices. Students produce a small book.
