Stephanie Copoulos Selle

Professor of Art, University of Wisconsin-Waukesha

My professional career as an artist began with printmaking. Later, I developed into a painter, and most recently, a bookmaker. Early on, I was interested in suites of prints, serial imagery, and narrative. It was a logical step to move from serial images alone into text and images combined. I began to make artist’s books in the 1990s, acquiring lead type and a press. My books are usually about the traveling or movement of characters, often women, and using this as a metaphor for life as a whole. The books avail themselves of many media, including woodcut, silkscreen, lithography, letterpress, and electronically produced images. Most recently I have been exploring images, pages, and text that actually move in the form of video books.
