CBK 5220. Box Elements in Book Arts. 3 Credits.

This class will cover the basic ins and outs for box making. Suitable tools and materials for box construction as well as various box applications will also be discussed. Students will create four archival box constructions as examples of storage and presentation solutions-the drop spine box, a slipcase, a paper box wrapper, and a folding box. Students will also explore using the box as a creative outlet for self- expression. For final project, the class-under instructor guidance-will create a "story box" with the goal being to produce an individual conceptual book object while at the same time finding one's own unique artistic voice. Priority to graduate students of the Art and the Book department; open to other degree students as space is available.
