      Topics in Studio Art: Book Arts and Letterpress
      Students in this course will learn the foundational skills in book
      arts. Students will become familiar with conceptual design, materials,
      and structure of the book while learning binding techniques,
      typographic principles, setting and printing lead type by hand,
      creating images from photopolymer, printing on a Vandercook proof
      press, and editioning. Students will develop their own book project
      from concept to finished edition. Harmony between image, text, and
      structure will be stressed, and the recent history of the book arts
      will be covered.
