PAST CLASS: Artists Books & The Printed Zine
About the Course
Book Arts/ Printmaking: Artist’s Books & the Printed Zine Instructor: Elizabeth Isakson-Dado In this class, we will explore various methods of printing artists’ books and zines with traditional printmaking methods, including relief printing, monotype, and pressure printing with oil board. The aesthetics of this media draws on the tradition of artist-created books from the 1970s on, and updates our processes to be inspired by the DIY culture of zines. Each class will begin with a discussion of book forms and examples of printmaking methods. We’ll discuss designing in sequence, folding and cutting techniques, and how the image-making process relates to various book structures. Participants will create several one-of-a-kind simple folded book structures, a folio of prints from each person in the class to be bound into a book with a copy for each participant, and an edition of 15 of their own pamphlet books.
