The print edition of INGRESS / EGRESS was selected as one of the five finalists for the 2017 Minnesota Center for Book Arts Biennial Prize.
INGRESS / EGRESS began as the 2015 edition in the Artists’ Publication Series from the Ringling College of Art and Design. The book was designed by book artist Ellen Knudson of Crooked Letter Press, Gainesville, Florida. The print edition was letterpress printed and produced at and with the Ringling College Letterpress and Book Arts Center.
INGRESS / EGRESS is an artist's book that contemplates the design of artists' books. The intent of the piece is to encourage ideation on the theme "books are". The six French-fold books use geometry, visual design, text, and imagery to investigate topics such as "Books Are Architecture" and "Books Are Collections".
