The Hybrid Book

WELCOME TO THE HOME PAGE of The Hybrid Book: Intersection and Intermedia, an international Book Arts Conference and Fair, June 4-9, 2009, sponsored by the MFA Book Arts/Printmaking Program at the University of the Arts.

Book arts represents a multi-arts forum: two-dimensional, three-dimensional, and time-based, one in which design, fine arts, craft, language, and new technologies combine, compete, and intersect. The focus of The Hybrid Book was on that aspect-—the book as a hybrid art form and book arts as multi-disciplinary.

Central to the University's vision is an interest in the interdisciplinary in art and a belief that from such approaches, new forms of creative expression emerge. Our MFA Book Arts/Printmaking Program, which celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2008-2009, is inspired by that exploration.
