In this class, students will make small edition, self-published visual books, illustrated pamphlets, pictorial chapbooks, artist’s books, comics and image-based zines. The class will be taught simultaneously, via skype, with a class at Parsons Paris. In addition to creating their own work, students will collaborate on projects with students at Parsons Paris in real time, sending files via e-mail. The class will collaborate on a long-distance project with students at the Accademia di Belli Art in Bologna. There will be a class trip to the Bologna Book Fair, during Spring Break, during which Parsons students will be hosted by students from Bologna. In addition to visiting the book fair, there will be opportunities for the students to meet and work together with students from Bologna, Paris and Hamburg. Students can take Pictozine without going on the Bologna trip. The class will also produce zines that will be presented and sold at the MoCCA (Museum of Comic and Cartoon Art) Festival in April.
