In this Printmaking course, students will make original artist books using a range of materials and working methods in editions (meaning multiple copies of a book). Students will build on binding techniques learned in Artists’ Books: Intro, Artists’ Books: Narrative, or Artists’ Books: Content and Form, and develop one or two small projects leading to a larger final editioned book. This course will utilize letterpress printing, binding, various ways to include images in book forms, and will have a strong focus on concept develop and craft in the final edition. This is an excellent class for students looking to further develop their artists’ books skills and concepts, or with a book project in mind. We will also look at and discuss contemporary artist books and practices, visit an artists’ books collection, and develop critique practice in class.
