Letterpress and Book Arts|
This course focuses on the editioned self-published artists' book and the role of printed matter within that form. Students are introduced to various methods available to artists for self-publishing. Skills covered range from the use of the printing press, moveable type, and hands-on bookbinding, to digital design and the contracting of press-ready work to professional printing outfits. Through the production of ephemera, broadsides, small editions, and bound volumes, students will learn the rudiments of letterpress and book arts. Class prompts and assignments will call on students to use these media to express, transmit, and archive their personal artistic vision.
