66-2120 Artists Books


Artists Books are a unique genre in art: not literature, though they often have words in them, not sculpture, though they frequently have sculptural qualities, but a unique, interdisciplinary vehicle for artistic expression. This class will introduce undergraduate students to the basic techniques, both traditional and non-traditional materials, non-traditional processes, and concepts of making artists’ books, including a range of approaches, from hand bound one-of-a-kind books to books that are industrially produced and only exist in multiple. There will be a focus on the sculptural aspects of the book and how the narrative form can be used in other modalities such as installation and performance, and how these skills can be incorporated into their own fields of study.
