Blanket Impressions:
Brad Freeman, Clifton Meador, and the Offset Printed Artists' Book

Curated by Steve Woodall for San Francisco Center for the Book
May - August, 2011


Though internationally known and widely admired, book artists Clifton Meador and Brad Freeman have worked for the past 30 years against the prevailing trends of the genre: for both, the printing medium of choice has been offset lithography, not letterpress, and both have created work driven more by concerns of content than physical structure or craft for its own sake. Together they represent a fresh and progressive approach to the artist’s book.

For the past five years Freeman and Meador have been working together at the Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts, where Freeman runs the studio and edits the Journal of Artists’ Books and Meador directs the MFA program.
