Artist's Book: Narrative + Form

Course No. PRI 232-332-432  Credits: 3.0
Faculty Corrie Slawson | Jennifer Craun

This course is for students interested in producing sequentially developed imagery via linear book structures. Historical examples and contemporary developments regarding the evolution of the artist book are examined through texts, through the use of our library’s artist book collection, in discussion, and during critiques. Due to technological advancements over the last century artists now have a variety of media with which to explore output of book projects. The class will expose students to the nature and potential of different book structures as well as a variety of materials. The course will heighten the student’s ability to utilize the interaction of sequenced content—the act of turning pages—to express the continuity of an idea flowing through a continuum. Students realize the potential of narrative, sequence, and pacing, together with the importance of combining word and image. Open Elective. One semester required for Print majors for graduation.
