Photography and the Artist Book

Class Description

In this 4-week class, students will explore the possibilities of making a one of a kind artist book.  This class will combine elements of analogue photography, digital photography, found object and bookbinding to create these personalized books. This class involves a field trip to the UW Rare Books collection as well as demonstrations, in-class critiques, online resources and access to cameras and darkroom resources. For examples of this kind of work check out the artist links below:
