33. ARTISTS' BOOKS: STRATEGIES FOR COLLECTING. (MONDAY-FRIDAY, JUNE 9-

spectrum of cultural objects, handmade originals, calligraphic and
typographic experimentation, conceptual productions, and works
produced in the traditions of fine printing and independent
publishing. This course provides critical and historical perspectives
from which to conceive of a collecting rationale for both individuals
and institutions. Instructor: Johanna Drucker.

JOHANNA DRUCKER became Robertson Professor of Media Studies at UVa in
1999; she has also taught at Columbia, Yale, and SUNY Purchase. She
has been making artists' books for many years. Among her books are
The Visible Word: Experimental Typography and Modern Art, 1909-23
(1994) and The Century of Artists' Books (1995).
