Writing Across The Civil-Military Divide: Artists’ Books Lecture

1-Part WorkshopSaturday March 7th, 1-3 pmFrom historical, foundational book forms to unexpected, innovative book forms, writers and artists have collaborated to emphasize message. Such a collaboration prompts new consideration of relationships between text, image and form. Form creates a place to combine language with visual elements. Image adds to the understanding of text. Both interact with text to enhance intimacy between writer and reader. Artists’ books develop narratives using typography, photographs, postcards, paper scraps, cutting, folding, erasing and other components suggesting history, people, dates, and events, real and imagined. Artists’ books emphasize a physical engagement with language.This presentation by Luise Poulton offers participants a hands-on opportunity to read and discuss war stories that consider form and image as integral parts of storytelling: encouraging problem-solving, enhancing multicultural awareness, inspiring pride in heritage, and employing multiple intelligences with language to convey meaning.Luise Poulton is Managing Curator and Head of the Rare Books Department, Special Collections, J. Willard Marriott Library, The University of Utah.Location: Marriott Library, 295 S.
