Description

Using the history and health of our own bodies we will create three artists' books each from a different prompt. Through these three projects students will learn to develop autobiographical material into different book structures- the dos à dos, the accordion, and the compound binding.

Additional Presenter Information

Rebecca Goodale

Since 2000, Maine artist Rebecca Goodale has been creating artists' books about plants and animals currently listed as threatened or endangered by the state of Maine. With this body of work, now over 80 titles and counting, Goodale aims to raise awareness and appreciation of Maine’s endangered flora and fauna, not as a botanist would, but as a visual artist fascinated by her subject’s complex beauty.

Her work is in numerous collections including the Maine Women Writers Collection; Bowdoin College Library; Herron Art Library, IN; New York Public Library; Smithsonian African Museum of Art; and the Library of Congress. She is the Program Coordinator for the Kate Cheney Chappell ’83 Center for Book arts at the University of Southern Maine.
