These explorations will be addressed by lectures, critiques, demonstrations of techniques, practical workshops and set projects.

Learning Outcomes

  • an understanding of historical book arts practices and their application in contemporary practice;
  • knowledge of current practices in integrating image and text;
  • technical skills in applying theory to practice;
  • a rationalised personal approach for integrating image and text.
