Download (5Mb)


    The thesis paper deals with the artist book, an art form that has become a part of the university curriculum since the beginning of my university studies. It is most closely connected with the fields of sketch and photography. Both personl sketch and the field of photography have been of particular interest to me during my university years and I prepared an exhibition on the subject, presented by Faculty of Education Gallery. This thesis covers the historical and theoretical background of the artist book and maps the creation of my own artist book, an artistic superaddition titled LJ. Some of the pioneers of the artist book are also mentioned, including Ed Ruscha, the author of the Twenty Six Gasoline Stations. He was one of the first artist to draw attention to the various artistic possibilities of this art form intertwining different graphic components including sketch, photography, font, paper characteristic, and other visual effects. Franc zagoričnik is presented as a native artist interested in the art form. He was a member of the OHO group, which reached the same conclusions as Ruscha in the 1970s. The thesis places the artist book within the field of education, since this particular pedagogical approach has been shown to give the pupil freedom of choice and thus enrich his sensibilty to artistic expression. Pratical reasearch was conducted at a high school in Koper, while theoretical research heavily relied on the MGLC library, which is the only Slovene library to carry contemporary literature on this particular art form.
