BA Book Arts & Design Interim Exhibition

The Book In Context

We all know what a book is. We read books for pleasure and consult them for information. We buy and sell them, give them as gifts and collect them as valuable objects. They are taught in schools, quoted to prove arguments and sometimes learned off by heart. Some are revered as sacred whilst others are condemned as evil and dangerous. They can be passed on down the ages, ever re-proposed in new form. So, what is a book? The paper and ink object we may hold in our hand or the story we apprehend from its pages? We have known books as clay tablets, palm leaves and scrolls of leather. And in this digital era of ours, with its eBooks and iPads, does it still make any sense to identify the concept of book with any particular physical manifestation at all?

Interrogating not only the artifact's form, its structure and materiality, but also concepts of sequence and narrative, reading and authorship, Book Arts investigates the Book as a creative medium in its own right. The discipline moves from Fine Arts, Graphic Arts and Design and the traditions of book production and publishing and is delimited only by our evolving ideas of what constitutes 'bookness'.

Books can be more than mere conduits for the information displayed in them. In their very design and material production they can engage in discourse with the wider environment in which they are created. And so, with a self-concious look at the trends and tropes of genre and the interests and idiosyncrasies of the audiences addressed, the third-year BA students in Book Arts & Design welcome you to explore with them different ways of approaching the Book in Context.
