Illustration and Book Arts

This course develops students' visual practice in areas that are important for illustration and book art, such as visual sequencing and visual text. It challenges students to cross the divide between fine art and applied art found on many undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. Students explore aspects of illustration and book art, such as the relationships between word and image, narratology and visual language; they also receive guidance on research methods and critical writing - which they can put to immediate use on the course, as well as in their future career.
