Artist, designer and former PhotoMidwest Board Member Paul Nylander returns to Madison for this special Third Thursday talk featuring the culmination of his Isolation work: a hand-printed, hand-bound, limited-edition book of photogravure images and letterpress text.

Paul will explain how the creation of the book became a work of art in and of itself: Through design, the artist can control the progression, pacing, and impact of images in ways which borrow from both static exhibition and video presentation, yet create a tangible artifact that will last well beyond the lifetime of the artist.

In this presentation, Paul will talk about his process to create the images and prints, and how a hand-made book differs from traditional “print-on-demand” photo book.
