Artists' Books by Fiat Lux students

Tuesday, November 25, 2014 - 8:00am to Friday, February 20, 2015 - 5:00pm

Displayed in the cases in the Arts Library are artists’ books by undergraduate students created in the Fiat Lux seminar Artists’ Books in the UCLA Library and Beyond, held in Spring 2014.

Taught by Visual Arts Librarian Robert Gore, the course offered an introduction to the genre and to artists’ books at UCLA. In sessions led by guest lecturers, students examined artists’ books in the collections of the Arts Library, History and Special Collections for the Sciences (located in the Biomedical Library), William Andrews Clark Library and Charles E. Young Research Library Department of Special Collections.

During the class students also had a chance to learn about zines, see work done by a former student and hear about book design from an award winning letterpress printer and book designer. For their final assignment, students were given the opportunity to make their own artists’ book.
