[BKARTS] Two book arts study opportunities

I'm posting this on behalf of Angela Lorenz.  Questions should be directed
to her at <mailto:aslorenz@xxxxxxxxxxx>aslorenz@xxxxxxxxxxx


Book Arts Tutorial in Bologna, Italy

$1,200 buys up to three people, or a small family the opportunity to spend
a week in a quiet two-bedroom house a short bus ride away from the center
of Bologna. One or all of the occupants are invited to spend two 3-hour
sessions with American book artist Angela Lorenz in her studio or about the
city. This time could be used in a variety of ways, such as developing or
critiquing book  projects, exploring the world of book arts in general
through the artists reference library or her own work, or as an opportunity
for conducting personal research in Italy. Bologna is filled with libraries
and museums ripe for exploration. The artist would be happy to facilitate
necessary passes ahead of time, or personally guide participants through
short itineraries tailored to individual interests, October 1 July 1. For
details contact: <mailto:aslorenz@xxxxxxxxxxx>aslorenz@xxxxxxxxxxx  To

Contemporary Book Art
Angela Lorenz

Friday & Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
December 3rd & 4th, 2004

Through a presentation of her own editions, encompassing a spectrum of
techniques, materials and formats, the instructor -- a highly recognized
creator of artists' books -- focuses on: letterpress printing and
typographic design; bookbinding structures and paper-engineering; relief
printing; composition and conservation of paper and alternative supports.
Discuss the process and practice of artists' books today, highlighting
conceptual uses of traditional techniques. View and handle extensive
examples of contemporary books in intimate settings, both at NYU and in
local public collections. Study varied approaches to the book as art,
including implications and considerations of unique books, editioned books,
and facsimile, or trade editions.

Note: This course counts as a 5-session elective towards the Certificate in
Appraisal Studies.
