Ever wonder how a book is made, outside of the huge factory production of regular publishing? This video by Abigail Uhteg, a 2007 graduate of the Maryland Institute College of Art, shows how. She had an artists' book residency at the Women's Studio Workshop (Rosendale, NY) this summer and produced a small edition (35 copies) of a book with etchings, letterpress, and handmade paper. While printing and binding the book, she took 3,000 photos of the process and made them into a video.
Check it out here. You can also find out more about her work at her website and learn more about the programs at the Women's Studio Workshop.
There will be an exhibition of artists' books created at Women's Studio Workshop in the 2nd floor Art and Print Galleries at Parkway Central, from January 19 through February 24, 2010.
