In this studio you will test the boundaries of the book, and explore new publication design practices that have the potential to move fluidly between print and digital experiences. You will add skills and knowledge to your practice which will allow you to create speculative, generative and reactive book designs.
Students will engage with new post-digital publication practices and theory through hands-on activities, individual and group projects in speculative book design, and through weekly critical discussions.
