This course will begin with an historical and contemporary study of the limited edition 'works on paper/mixed media' artist produced book 'object'. Students will then design, experiment and produce a series of book 'form' art objects using a variety of materials, medias, printing processes, etc. This workflow will be designed around in-class lectures, mixed media workshops and extensive in-class discussions and evaluations of work produced. The definition of an artist's book is purposely broad, from the medieval hand-painted illuminated manuscripts to contemporary artist's publications using inexpensive commercial and internet publishing sources. An essential aspect of the learning exprience will be instructor led location trips to three of the most important venues for this internationally popular artform: Printed Matter bookstore, 10th Ave., NYC; the Morgan Library, Madison/37th St., NYC; and the annual Art Book Fair, held each Fall and sponsored by MOMA/PS1 in Long Island City, NY.
