Deadline: Friday 15 June 2018.
Openings: Studies in Book Art is an open-access, online journal published annually by the College Book Art Association (CBAA). As a double-blind peer-reviewed journal, Openings is dedicated to scholarship on the book as medium, construct, work of art, and, more generally, the arts of the book.
Openings seeks submissions on any relevant topic for its 2018 issue. We welcome articles (suggested length of 4,000-8,000 words) that span the full spectrum of aesthetic, semiotic, historical, political, pedagogical, or other approaches to book art. Contributions from diverse perspectives are encouraged as are interdisciplinary and international explorations of the relationship of book art to the broader art world or other related fields.
We also seek proposals for academic book reviews (750-1,250 words) of recently published criticism on book arts, media studies, or craft and artistic practices. Reviews of artist books or a group or genre of artist books may also be considered. Proposals are not peer reviewed but individually considered by the Editors. Proposals (250 words max.) for book reviews should include the name of the book and demonstrate how the book relates to the themes and audiences of Openings.
