Semester book project by Scripps Typography and the Book Arts class. Emerge is #54 in the series of collaborative books produced by Scripps College Press since 1986. This is copy no. 81 in an edition of 111 copies. Includes separate photograph of students drawing with light tables from several master copies. Creators include Noor Asif, Najla Bulous, Tara Contractor, May Lynn Forssen, Jing Gu, Ashley Minnis-Lemley, Star Schneider, Cassidy Shea, Zipporah Smith, and Anna Wilner with the Supervision of Prof. Kitty Maryatt. "This is the 54th edition in our collaborative book series in the Typography and the Book Arts class. Most of the elements of this book were not printed, which is unusual for our semester book project. All the drawings were hand-copied from the students' original master drawings using light tables. The students drew with a Uniball Signo .38 pen. The colorizing was by pochoir using Duralar hand-cut stencils and Color Box pigment pads. The text type is 12 pt. Centaur and Arrighi, small and delicate. We chose Somerset Satin as the text paper because it takes drawings so well. The simple paper binding utilizes Arches Cover Black. The cover image was drawn with a white pen." -colophon "The relationship between the four dimensions: line, area, volume and time, were the focus of this class. We started by drawing from nature, drawing only the edges of leaves and flowers in a continuous line, in order to explore the boundary. Next we allowed lines to intersect, creating areas, which demanded to be filled with color. This led us to choose colors which followed the seasons, starting with winter. To depict volume, we overlapped and lifted images off the page. The time element was reflected in the changing of the seasons, as well as the time it took to produce the original drawings and get each process done in a timely fashion. The spare text was developed after the images were finalized. In the end, we wanted the images to be just out of reach of recognition." -foreword
