"Books are portable magic". This course teaches students the studio practice of hand-made book arts. Examining visual and literary communication in various cultural contexts, students will learn to make book forms originating from both the East and West. The course will include some basic printmaking methods such as embossment, monotype, relief printing and image transfer as ways to convey meaning through imagery and color. Altered books and found objects will be considered for use.
