Student books

November 1, 2006 – January 31, 2007

BackwardsThe books in this exhibit are representative examples of student works printed in typography and graphic design courses taught by Professor Philip M. Hamilton during his earliest years of teaching at the UW-Madison, 1964-1985. The students have combined handset type with photography, relief printing, serigraphy, intaglio and lithography to produce books as works of art. The books include pieces produced by familiar professional artists, designers and cartographers who are now or have worked at the UW-Madison, such as Professor Bill Weege, Professor Jim Escalante, the late David Woodward, John Risseeuw, Susan Kae Grant, Kevin Henkes, Marta Gomez, and the late Joe Wilfer, among others. The books are part of a larger gift of student books donated to the Kohler Art Library by Professor Hamilton. The exhibition runs from November 1, 2006-January 31, 2007.
