The New Book; Book Craft Tradition meets Do It Yourself Youth-Pop Culture

The traditional Craft enclaves had always been exclusive (monasteries), now anyone can gain access to centuries of craft knowledge. Fine art printing is being used for disposable literature and traditional bindings are used as Trojan horses for post-modern book works. Computers and press systems are now taught to a literate, copier friendly bunch of students raised on punk music, providing the confluence between hardcore craft and the D.I.Y. culture which has birthed the ‘zine and the artist made book. The lecture explores this confluence and includes a survey of artists’ books, comics, ‘zines, graphic novels and other printed matter with discussion of their historical context and interrelations.
