As an alternative to the politics and limitations of studio practices, artists’ books since William Blake’s  Songs of Innocence and of Experience  have allowed artists to experiment with conceptual ideas, visual and literary materials, as well as production practices. This course will begin with the precedent that Blake set, and investigate the numerous manifestations of the artist’s book. Course material will consider exhibitions and special libraries, and will look at the work of artists and collectives such as Ed Rucha, Cobra, Guy Debord, Fluxus, and Andy Warhol, to name a few. In responding to this material, students will also work on a final project and produce their own artist’s book.
