This three-credit hour course, entitled Type and Image, will be taught by current London College of Communication (http://www.lcc.arts.ac.uk) faculty in conjunction with EMU faculty. Course work will include a letterpress component and an image-making component. The course will also include museum and studio visits and a possible lecture program.

Projects will be based around students gaining an understanding of the historical, technological and contemporary context of graphic design in Britain. Issues of contemporary art and design practice will be addressed through class projects.
