The Artists’ Book Lecture Series is a series of talks by three working artists around the Midwest. Their works incorporate a variety of mediums and formats that push the boundaries of the traditional book form. Each artist is represented in the Fine Arts Library’s historic Artists’ Book Collection, and these lectures are designed to highlight the diversity and unique materials that make up this magnificent IU treasure. The series is supported by the Artists’ Book Endowment Fund.
Our final speaker is David Wolske, Visiting Assistant Professor of Graphic Design at the IU School of Art & Design. David Wolske received a BA in Studio Art from Marian University, Indianapolis, Indiana, and an MFA in Graphic Design from Indiana University, Bloomington, Indiana. His work is exhibited and collected around the world. He regularly teaches typography, graphic design, letterpress printing, and book arts classes and workshops across the United States. David’s work reveals an affinity for handset wood and metal type, but also enthusiastically incorporates digital tools, computer software, and design thinking into a manual workflow that draws heavily on the traditions of letterpress and fine art printmaking.
