What Can Books Do?

Regular price $10.00

This collaborative publication features graphic responses from Otis GD MFA 2024 candidates, as well as short interviews. What Books Can Do? is the printed outcome of a workshop with Draw Down Books (Christopher Sleboda and Kathleen Sleboda) at the Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles in June 2024.

The graduate student interviews and their graphic interpretations of contemporary design titles offer a unique perspective on the evolving landscape of design-related publications and publications by designers.
