The ever-inventive world of arts publications encompasses a dazzling range of subjects, mediums, and materials: from ancient illuminated manuscripts, political manifestos, and one-of-a-kind artists books to handmade zines, high-end glossies, poster and print multiples, CD and DVD covers, and the infinitely reproducible pages of the internet. This workshop will introduce and explore many of these forms through guest lecturers, field trips to specialized collections and museums, directed readings, and hands-on work, which will culminate in final group and individual projects. Readings may include  New Master's of Poster Design: Poster Design for the Next Century ,  A History of Illuminated Manuscripts ,  Stylepedia: A Guide to Graphic Design Mannerisms, Quirks, and Conceits,  and  The Printed Picture .
