The UICB fine press facilities are made of multi-disciplinary classrooms where writers can experiment with letterpress and calligraphers can collaborate with illustrators. All share a passion for the book. At UICB, narratives and poetry can be triggered in the process of making a book: through typography, graphic layout and images. It is a place where the book goes beyond written words and becomes an integral art piece.
Letterpress studio and binding facilities at UICB (pictured above) are places where writers like to experiment and discover new territories.
Sara Langworthy who is an instructor at UICB shows us samples of fine press books by UI Alumni. Attention to detail is a common obsession in book art: from typesetting to engraving.
