Beyond the Art Historical Canon: A New Visual History is a syllabus book for a fictional art history course. The course is organized thematically and is designed to introduce a new, multicultural approach to art education. Beyond the Art Historical Canon features short biographies of artists and highlights some of their works. The book also includes background reading suggestions as well as assignments and in-class writings for each section. The goal of this project is to serve as an educational tool in teaching art history.
The layout of the book is kept clean and minimalist to reflect the feeling of browsing an art museum or gallery. Modern and sophisticated typography help to focus on the content and dynamic imagery the book contains. The cover design features just the title hand-embossed to keep with the clean minimalism of the inside contents.
