In a contemporary world, this operates as a response to our increasingly digital age, where we are inundated with a never-ending desire for immediacy. Presenting a variety of art forms that fall under the vast umbrella of Book Arts, this experience surveys the rich collaborative history of the UNO Book Arts program and introduces its future through an evocative compilation of works by several students, faculty, and local book arts professionals.Pressing Matters | Vol. 1 offers a peek into the vast world of Book Arts while offering QR codes for further research.
