[ART250] Book Arts
This course explores the complex, interdisciplinary processes of bookmaking and bookbinding as an art form.Students learn about visual aspects and processes of book structures and their content. We talk explicitly about the relationships between structure, content, text, and image. Additionally, students are challenged with the processes of bookmaking through their personal exploration of themes. The content of the books may be explored through multiple media such as photography, writing, drawing, and/or collage.We also discuss histories and theories about how information can be structured and the status of the book in contemporary society.
Prerequisite: any 100-level studio art course.
