The Book Arts Program offers two classes in
book arts (ART 3550 & ART 4110) and two classes in letterpress
printing (ART 3770 & ART 4770).
In Book Arts I and II students learn various book binding and book
designing techniques and skills. The concept of the artist's book
is explored and students are encouraged to work with both
traditional and non-traditional book forms and materials. Book Arts
II emphasizes three-dimensional book forms and pop-ups.
In Letterpress I students learn the basics of letterpress printing
using raised metal type to form text and relief printing processes
to create images. Letterpress II emphasizes the creative process of
collaboration and designing for the marketplace. Students work as
apprentices for The Tulip Poplar Press to design and produce
limited edition publications for the market place.
