Sophomores display print-inspired book covers
Posted 12.02.16 by Allison Fischbach
Shadra Strickland's Sophomore students present a selection of newly designed book covers. These fanciful and detailed projects show the use of varied printmaking methods to create eye-catching jackets for your favorite novels and stories.
Students were introduced to four different techniques: mono print, transfer mono print, stenciling, and linoleum printing. Each student was asked to complete a book cover of their choosing using one or more of the techniques. All the covers are at least 50% printmaking.
On display are the final book covers, as well as drafts and working materials, including carved linoleum blocks and proofs from selected designs.
Students whose work is featured include:
