CFPR Book Arts: e-publications

Sarah Bodman and Tom Sowden will soon be working with French artist Nicolas Frespech (http://frespech.com), who has been converting some of Sarah's artists' books into e-publications which can be played on Androids and i-Pads.

Future plans include a project between Book Arts at UWE and staff and students at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de Lyon, during which they will work using i-Pads and Sony readers to produce artists' books as e-publications. These will be exhibited in the Ecole University library and at CFPR.

Nicolas and Sarah have papers being presented at the International Conference "Small Press Atlas" Rouen, 22nd-23rd March 2012, on their UK and French work to date. Sarah's paper‘Artists’ books and small press editions, embracing the future of the book in the age of mass publication’ has been translated into French by Dr Anne Bechard-Leaute (Université Jean Monnet), who will be presenting the paper on Sarah's behalf.

Nicolas and Sarah will also be presenting papers at a symposium in Saint-Etienne, organised by Université Jean Monnet, 28th - 29th September 2012: "Artists' books v. Livres d'artistes", with a special focus on the development of artists' books in France and Britain since the 1980s.

Ten UWE MA Printmaking students and alumni have also been invited to make physical books for a corresponding exhibition "Regards Croisés : France - Grande-Bretagne", alongside ten students from the Université Jean Monnet, which will remain on show during the Saint-Etienne Book Fair which runs throughout October.
