Book Arts is an excellent major for artists desiring a multi-media environment for their talents and who have a flair for diverse materials.
Printmaking, photography, fine paper, unusual and standard binding techniques, computer applications, drawing, painting and design all convene in the book. The idea of a book is not confined to its common commercial definition but can take many inventive forms. The book can emerge from the creative process as a graphic novel, a sculpture, an installation or any form at all. Students with book arts major are valued in all graphic arts fields of employment.
