Contemporary History of Artist Books

With the world moving so much to the digital realm, more and more artists are turning to the medium of artist books to create one-of-a-kind or limited-edition art objects that can be touched. Artist’s books are works of art in book form and can range from fine craft letterpress works to unique art objects presented in a wide variety of materials and book formats.

Join HCP instructor Kelly Webeck for this lunch-time workshop and discover a collection of contemporary artists and photographers who create book objects and hand-bound artist’s books in small editions. Students will learn the basics of artist’s books, including the common vocabulary and anatomy of artist books. Class discussions will explore book artists’ different artistic choices and explore how a body of photographic work can be infused with new meaning by those decisions. The class will discuss and critique the choices each artist makes in the creation of a small edition of books and engage in dialogue about what makes the decisions successful or not. Additionally, Webeck will introduce students to materials and recommendations for creating their own artist’s book.
