In this workshop we will explore the relationship between text and images in an artist’s book. We’ll talk about which comes first—does it make a difference? Through a series of exercises, we will examine ways of using images and text to create movement in a book. Looking beyond image as illustration for text, we will explore how images can modify or contradict the text.

For Saturday, the students should bring magazines to cut up, or any images of the student's own to cut up, i.e. rejected / left-over prints or drawings, paintings on paper, fabric, etc. for exercises in pacing. On Sunday, students will be using some of the concepts learned on Saturday to create a dummy for a possible project, so will need images and, if desired, text of their own.
