"What is Book Arts?" is a frequently asked question. The great difficulty with this question is that a single definition for an artist book remains elusive despite the fact that Book Arts is becoming increasingly popular. Book art involves every possible type of book making, every possible form, every kind of shape and different degrees of durability.
The richness of an Artist's Book as an art form comes from the wide spectrum of artistic activities from which it is drawn. Artists are given the opportunity to have their book be the vehicle of a concept; for example, the book may be made in the shape of a house or a piece of bread and the text and images incorporated to go with those ideas.
Likewise, the book could be a container for a collection of memories, art, prose or even a blank journal. We cover a variety of ways to sew books and book structures, including ways to get images and content onto your pages.
These programs are available as concentrations in the AA in Fine Arts degree.
