ART 332 - Book Arts

Credits: (3)
Prerequisite(s): ART 211  
Domain (Anchored): ALV
This course is designed to give students an understanding of several forms of book binding and stitching. This course will focus on the construction of unique and limited edition books that exist as works of art instead of simply containers for images or words. Students will be simultaneously learning different construction methods while also producing a body of photographic work to be bound into a final book. This course will require critiques throughout the semester to assist in the editing and sequencing phases of photographic book art production. By the end of the course, students will have constructed several types of handmade books. Attention to craft is essential throughout the course, while attention toward concept builds progressively during the semester.
