Hokusai & Book Illustration with Ellis Tinios
In this new course, taught by Ellis Tinios (University of Leeds), students will consider the Edo-period artist Katsushika Hokusai as a publishing phenomenon, examining in detail his achievements as a book illustrator
and print designer. Further topics to be covered include Hokusai’s relationship with his publishers, the process of book production, the marketing of his books, and the reception and influence of the artist and his books in the West.
The course is aimed at a broad constituency, including
students of the book, conservators, curators, collectors, librarians,artists, designers, and art historians—to anyone interested in books as objects, as commodities, and as works of art.
