LEVI SHERMAN, graduate interdisciplinary Book & paper arts Student, is using his letterpress printing expertise to research, write and create a series of books about Colombian coffee culture. In addition to receiving Columbias Aiko Fellowship for his work, SHERMAN travel to Colombia in December 2013 to examine the relationship between Latin American coffee farmers and coffee consumers through photography, interviews and research. In July 2013, College Book Art Association, national organization that promotes academic Book Art education, awarded SHERMAN travel grant for the trip. He says he has completed five books so far, and is currently working on one about the effects of reading to coffee plants. SHERMAN, who graduated from the University of Arizona in 2012 with a bachelors degree in graphic design, said he discovered his passion for book art in a class he took during his last semester at UA. SHERMAN held a teaching apprenticeship last summer at Wells College in Aurora, NY, at its Book Art Center Summer Institute, where he educated students about letterpress techniques while refining his own skills. SHERMAN will receive his Masters in May 2015 and said he has a lot to look forward to in his time at Columbia. He plans to eventually take an active role in tending Papermakers Garden, Columbias Green space located at the corner of Wabash Avenue and 8 Street that features a variety of plants used as papermaking fiber and art material. Chronicle spoke with SHERMAN about his passion for books, Art, trip to Colombia and future plans. LEVI SHERMAN: Book Art, or artists ' books, are a zone of intersection between a lot of different disciplines. Its kind of like a mixture between bookbinding, zones, graphic novels, photography, photo essays and poetry. Basically, the idea is that an artist would control all of aspects of the production of a single book or single piece of art. LS: When I was looking at grad schools, I was mostly applied to graphic design programs. This was one exception and I hadnt actually taken book arts class until I had already applied and got accepted here, which kind of made my decision a lot easier. My last semester of undergrad, I took Book arts, and it was a really nice break from doing client-driven design work. A lot of skills transfer, but I felt like using those skills for more meaningful or stimulating purpose. LS: 've got a couple of projects that I start before I take trip. Research gives me a push to finish up some of what I started and different perspective. As far as the ultimate goal with hand-make paper and printing on that, I am still working on making images before I can finish that. LS: It was definitely different than I expect. It was surprisingly hard to talk about some things that I think people would be willing to talk about.
