    Mills College has a long history of teaching book art at the college level, starting with the founding of the Eucalyptus Press in 1930. In the 1980s, the first separate graduate degree-granting program in Book Art in the nation was developed at Mills. Today, the Mills College Book Art Program includes an MFA program in Book Art and Creative Writing as well as one of the most comprehensive undergraduate programs in the country. In 2016 we extended our programming to include the Mills College Summer Institute for Book and Print Technologies which included two five-day workshops offered at the master class level. We are pleased to announce that our fourth annual summer institute will include seven days of programming including two five-day workshops and two three-day workshops with public presentations by the four artist/instructors. Workshops will be fast-paced and taught at an advanced level. All participants must have prior experience in bookmaking, letterpress printing or printmaking, depending on the workshop.

    “May You Live in Interesting Times”
    A Book as Art Juried Exhibition

    The Northern Arizona University Art Museum announces a juried exhibition to be mounted in Spring of 2020. Open from February 4 until April 4, the exhibition, titled “May You Live in Interesting Times,” will present new works conceived within the conceptual category of the Book as Art, including Altered Books. The Museum invites submissions on significant themes derived from the issues we face here and around the world, including, but not limited to, environmental challenges, politics, immigration, race, and nationalism.

    Our 2020 exhibition will embrace widely varying conceptions of the “book” created in an equally diverse range of media. The Museum is producing this event in the firm belief that, in the age of virtual media, there is still a profoundly powerful effect to be drawn from prolonged interaction with a physical artifact in a “screen-free” environment.
