P.V. 4 Mentorship: Guide and teach current and future clients and information professionals to ensure the continued growth of the field.
For my final project I put an archival slant to my work and took on the task of presenting an informational Website dedicated to the printed book. The Website is based on Tanselle’s theory that the physicality of the book should be considered just as important as the book i.e., the object is artifact. In as such I dedicated four Web pages to discussing Paper, Typography, Illustration, and Binding.
With the ongoing mantras of the books is dead it is important to have a foundation in what makes up the printed book. This artifact demonstrates my ability to give introductory information on the book as an artifact for both patrons and professionals alike.
