2014 BookOpolis Video

BookOpolis 2014 is titled Printmade Artist’s Books. It asks the artist to consider questions about the ‘printmade’ artist’s book: How do you create an artist’s book using printmaking techniques? What book structures lend themselves to combinations with printmaking? How do the book structure and the printmaking process interact when making the book art object? Why would an artist choose to printmake an artist’s book?
