About the Book
To highlight the book as an interdisciplinary, dynamic form, the Printmaking Program at California College of the Arts presented the exhibition "ArtRead" February 9-16, 2009. This catalogue contains photographs and descriptions of all of the works by invited faculty, invited students, and juried students, as well as work by the curators (Betsy Davids, Nance O'Banion, and Alisa Golden), and "A Partial History of Book Art at CCA(C)" by Betsy Davids. The variety of methods and materials used in the works demonstrates the limitless possibilities of the book as an expressive art form. Found materials, letterpress printing, paper engineering, and printmaking techniques are only a few examples that you will find in this wide-ranging display.
