It's one thing to make a message legible—clear to another person and beautifully typeset (meaning how the letters have been arranged)—but quite another to render that message so that it has emotional and aesthetic qualities. The ability to do so is grounded in a thorough understanding of the history of typography. In this class, students will learn how to do just that. They will explore the development of typography and then apply what they've discovered to an engaging series of assignments and projects.

The Master Critique class is a unique online opportunity to work with photographer and book artist Ricardo Bloch who lives and works in Paris.

For Ricardo, books can provide all makers an exploration of image, text, materials. He sees artist's books as a medium that allows for pushing boundaries and expanding the definition of what a book is whether it be graphic or conceptual, handmade or printed, narrative or stream-of-consciousness, Xeroxed or collaged, political or autobiographical, analog or digital works.
