I would like to invite interested faculty and graduate students to sign up for my Enriching Scholarship Workshop, Artist Books For Inspiration or Just for Fun, happening on Thursday, 5/8 from 1:00 pm-3:00 pm in The AAEL Special Collections Room, room B245 in the Duderstadt Center.
Artists’ books are books that were created as works of art. The Art, Architecture and Engineering Library (AAEL) Special Collections has a growing collection of artists’ books in its holdings. These books have been created via printing press, silk screening, painting, sewing, and numerous other processes. They are made from a wide range of media including aluminum, cloth, handmade paper and wood. The books vary greatly in size and structure. Some fit in the palm of a hand, while others span the length of a table. Some are bound, while others must be constructed to be read, and still others illuminate to be read in the dark. In this hands-on session, Annette Haines, the Art and Design Librarian, will showcase this vibrant and thought-provoking collection and discuss ways in which you might incorporate these books into your courses.Click here to register for this workshop.
