Info: Update bookinformation website


Some of this week's updates in our website:

http://www.asu.edu/cfa/art/area/printmaking/bookart.html : BOOK ARTS, Arizona State
University, School of Art:  Coursework in Fine Printing & Bookmaking is classified under
the printmaking area, where it complements the other fine art courses often included in
the 'book arts'; paper making, lithography, intaglio, screen printing, relief, and mono
printing.  Undergraduate students may earn a BF degree in the printmaking area with an
emphasis in the book arts.  Graduate students may earn an MFA degree in printmaking with
an emphasis in any or all of the book arts.  Fine Printing & Bookmaking
classes are open to students from all disciplines, within and outside of the visual
arts.  Art students in printmaking, photography, graphic design, and occasionally from
painting and drawing, ceramics, or fibers bring different aesthetics and visual senses;
non-art majors from English, creative writing, history, the scholarly publishing
program, philosophy, and communication have all brought their own perspectives to enrich
the class.  A mix of undergraduate and graduate students is usual and also serves to
broaden the experience for everyone.

http://www.asu.edu/cfa/art/area/printmaking/press.html :  THE PYRACANTHA PRESS:  Arizona
State University School of Art.  Limited edition publishing projects are executed under
the School of Art's imprint, the Pyracantha Press, established at Arizona State
University in 1982.  The Press undertakes book arts projects which have particular merit
in literary content, which result in visual or technical research, or which
provide for significant collaboration between writers and artists or between
artists.  Publications of the Press are not done as class projects, but are produced
with professional care and quality by the director, the staff printer, and graduate
research assistants.

Installations.  Genie Shenk was born in Montgomery, Alabama, and spent her childhood

studies in San Francisco and at the Art Students League in New York, continued at
Palomar and Mira Costa Colleges in San Diego County, and in 1990 received an MFA from
UCLA.  She teaches color theory and book arts at the Athenaeum School of Arts and also
