Hope College Library Displaying Student “Artists’ Books”

HOLLAND – “Artists’ Books” designed by 17 Hope art students are being featured in a display in the Van Wylen Library at Hope College through Saturday, March 5.

The public is invited to see the display.  Admission is free.

The books offer an imaginative reinterpretation of the way that books traditionally relate language and images, each reflecting the vision of the individual artist.  As the exhibition’s statement notes, “Artists’ books are produced by a single creator who wears many hats:  writer, painter, printer, graphic designer, binder, photographer, illustrator and publisher.  Artists’ books can be all words, all images or a combination of both while exploring alternative forms, materials and production techniques.”

The books were created by students in the college’s “Applied Design II” class.  One of the volumes will be selected to become the first in the library’s new “Artists’ Book Collection.”
