The course will take an energetic and ambitious approach to the subject of artists' books. Students will create book models and then respond with books of their own on themes that draw connections to the books structures we explore each week in class. This course is open to beginning and experienced students who have an interest in the practice of artists' books. Be prepared to work quickly but also to delve deeply into the materials and practices of making books. You will make one or two books in class each week and then create a version of your own to discuss the following week.
NOTE: Class will meet Wednesday from 1-4:50 followed by a 2 hour evening lab from 6-8. You must be able to attend both class and lab.
