Abstract

In researching sign language and handmade books, it is evident that both share a means of visual communication requiring the hands in order for the viewer to experience the communication. This project explores the merging of these two modes in a series of handmade books that reinforce their similarities and possibilities, and examines ways that artists’ books might be used to more fully relate the Deaf experience. This study of a varied book structures and their corresponding page movements in combination with the icons of sign language allowed unique expressions of Deaf experience.
