This class will explore the small format as a process of research and building artists’ books, book objects and visual poetry. Like a seed changes into another thing, the artists’ book can be a transformer-object, which once opened, shows different possibilities of reading. Practicing with solid and flexible materials we will move from an idea to its representation to the creation of a new book form. Further we will discuss how to reproduce it in a small edition. Like a seed, a unique idea can grow into a series or an edition of small books.

Sunday, September 21, 1 – 5 PM
