Toni Woodall is a recent Herron School of Art & Design graduate with a minor in book arts. On display now in the library is the culmination of six students work from this course of study. Which has allowed each of them to funnel their creative work through the medium of the artist book which includes letterpress, other printmaking media and papermaking. Each student has been able to use the artist book in ways distinct to their interest and parallel to their major focus of work at Herron or IUPUI.
"The Historical and cultural context of art has been the main focus of my artist research. Art History, Anthropology, Classics and Book Arts has filled my mind with meaning. My exploration of artistic processes has allowed me to explore several of these narratives in an original and personal manner. The process of creating unique works of art has always been a primary focus of my time. Book Arts has given me a platform to bring new life to the forgotten people, places and events." ~Toni Woodall
The Book Arts minor is offered through the department of Printmaking at Herron. We teach eight distinct courses spanning bookbinding, concept building through the artist book, letterpress, the printed book, papermaking, paper engineering, a survey course and a capstone senior course.
