I will be teaching a workshop where students will explore the development of content for artists’ books and explore the proper forms to communicate that content. Various prompts and three simple printing methods will be used to generate content. A variety of simple bookbinding techniques combined with writing exercises, brainstorming activities and discussions will yield a number of mock-ups for artist’s books. Students may bring structural formats and/or their own writings if they would like them included in the discussions. The workshop will be held at the Maine Media College in Rockport, Maine.

Book Arts Roundtable with visiting artist
Emily Martin
Free and open to the public

Join me in a discussion of my recently completed books, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet and Out There In Here, along with insight into her newest project, now being called “Desdemona In Her Own Words,” which incorporates prints, puppets and stop motion animation.

New Prints started during Penland Residency

-->

#1  #3

I am exploring Othello with a particular interest in Desdemona and her appalling passivity. I am using her lines from Shakespeare’s play and rearranging the words to give her new lines to speak up for herself. The suite of prints are far from done but the residency at Penland has allowed me to sort out many of my thoughts on this project.
