San Diego Book Arts

Sara Rosenbluth received her M.A. in studio art from the State University of New York at Albany in 1972 where she worked in sculpture, painting and printmaking. She taught studio art from 1972 to 1979 at the Latin School of Chicago and from 1980 to 1987 at the University of Texas at Austin. In October 1996 she was a visiting artist at the National Academy in Rome. That year she began making artist's books and has since been in more than 35 book exhibitions. She uses a wide variety of techniques in her books including drawing, painting, photography, digital manipulation, computer printing, letterpress, polymer plates, and etching. Some books are based on nature, some humoress and based on idioms, others on travel. Her books are in the collections of The National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C., the Mandeville Special Collections, at the University of California at San Diego, the Malcolm A. Love Library at San Diego State University, and the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library in San Diego. San Diego Book Arts has contributed greatly to her interest in book arts.
