Description

The ever-inventive world of arts publications encompasses a dazzling range of subjects, mediums, materials, and methods: from ancient illuminated manuscripts, political manifestos, and one-of-a-kind artists books to handmade zines, high-end glossies, poster and print multiples, 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: Design: the Invention of Desire, A History of Illuminated Manuscripts, Design for People, and Action Time Vision.
