NHIA’s Graphic Design II class led by Lia Scardamaglia, presented their final accordion book projects in the library on Wednesday, December 3rd. The assignment required students to create accordion books that address the subject ‘The Notion of Place,” With this idea in mind, students used their own photographs, copy, and creative layout designs to make their books reflect their favored places or inspirational topics. Some of the books were donated to the Teti Library’s Special Collections.
If you are interested in seeing the library’s artists’ book collections, contact us for an appointment by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
