CDGD-416 Independent Publishing
9:00 am – 1:20 pm
Pratt Studios, 305
This class introduces students to the field of independent publishing, focusing particularly on the ways in which a communication designer might use the short-run, self-published book to explore ideas, work collaboratively and disseminate information quickly and cheaply. Employing a mix of class discussion, field trips, studio work and independent study, students gain an understanding of the culture and history of self-publishing while also acquiring a range of information and technical skills that can be applied within their own practical work.
