Tom Burtonwood's 3D artist's bookOrihon (3D Printed Artist's Book) by Tom Burtonwood

UCSB Arts Library Lobby (First Floor)

On exhibit beginning June 2, 2014

Tom Burtonwood’s Orihon (2014), a 3D printed accordion-fold volume contains scans of ancient sculptural objects.  It is the world's first completely 3D printed accordion-fold artist's book. From the artist's website: "I have been thinking for some time how it would be nice to produce a 3d printed book of textures and reliefs. To publish and distribute all the wonderful architectural patterning and decoration we enjoy here in Chicago and beyond. This is the prototype for that idea." Orihon is held in the Library's Department of Special Collections (call number:Printers Collection Z239.B57 .B87 2014).
