NEW! – Academic Requirements Effective Fall 2013

The UNO Book Arts program is centered in the Fine Arts Press, a typographic studio and letterpress print shop devoted to book arts instruction. Students work within the tradition of hand set type, letterpress printing and hand bookbinding to create both limited edition and unique books. Interdisciplinary projects utilizing papermaking, classical printmaking, sculpture, or electronic imaging applications are also explored. Studio majors may choose a book arts concentration culminating in advanced study and a thesis exhibition. The facility houses Vandercook proof presses, iron handpresses, treadle presses, over 300 cases of monotype, foundry and wood type, standing presses for bookbinding as well as other elementary binding equipment.
