Exhibition catalog for the Druckworks exhibition held at The Center for Book and Paper Arts at Columbia College Chicago from September 6-December 7, 2012; at the Denison Museum, Denison University from February 8-May 11, 2013; and at the San Francisco Center for the Book from May 24-August 24, 2013. From Director's Note: "Part of the book's authority comes from the fact that, for all its validity as a work of scholarship, it is written with the sensibility of an insider, an artist. The essays in Druckworks, 1972-2012 illustrate how Drucker's practice as an artist is both inseparable from her career in the academy and, at the same time, stands apart from it as an extremely impressive body of work in its own right." Topics covered include Opening through Juvenilia, Into Print and Handmade Books, Language Years, Art and Alphabets, Movement, More Presses and Printshops, Digital and Damaged, and Stochastic. Includes full list of artist projects, as well as contributor bios.
