Beowulf and the Dragon, designed, illustrated and bound by  J.M.O’Brien, 2007

The Student Made Book Collection includes books made as final projects by students in the College’s course “From Gutenberg to Gates: History and Practice of the Book” taught by German professor Roger Paas. Each year that the course is offered students are asked to produce a book in an edition of at least two, one to keep and one to add to the Collection. These books are made using a variety of techniques, but each must include some hand-set typography and at least one illustration using an illustration technique studied in class.
