Below is Julie's description of the class:

Artists' books: Ideas, Actions and Transformations

The latest installment in Julie Chen's popular "bookbrain" series
focusing on content studies for artists' books, this workshop will
feature innovative ways to jumpstart the creative process.

Through a combination of solid book arts technique and unfettered book
artists' vision, projects have been designed to help students break out
of their normal thought processes and working routines and develop new
ways for responding to ongoing personal themes, in-the-moment flashes of
inspiration and approaches to tried and true bookmaking media. Students
will also have the opportunity to have in-depth discussion about both
philosophical and practical issues concerning the design and production
of artists' books.

Emphasis will be placed on the development of a meaningful daily art
practice that can be adapted for use outside of the workshop setting.
Using innovative contemporary book structures, and various image and
text making techniques, students will produce a combination of
individual and collaborative works. While at least one project will be
finished during the course of the workshop, students will leave with
many prototype books, a wealth of ideas for future book projects, and a
fresh perspective on ways of approaching their studio work.
