Bowes Art & Architecture Library

Artists' Books from ARTSTUDI 147

In the Winter 2013 quarter, students from Ala Ebtekar's studio course visited the Art & Architecture Library twice to view selections from the library's artists' books collection. The visits helped to inform their own work, providing them with examples of the artist's book form that ranged from the historic to the contemporary, the traditional to the experimental. The works on view in this exhibition are the students' final projects, a set of works that includes altered books, hand-drawn and printed pages, mixed-media boxes, and intricately cut and folded creations.
