Learn how to transform a flat two-dimensional surface into a dynamic visual composition through the use of Notan, Japanese for light-dark design. Notan focuses on the interaction between positive and negative spaces, which is exemplified in such ancient images as the Yin-Yang symbol. Through a series of fun paper-based exercises, learn how to design more effectively in a way that will have a positive impact on your work in the book arts, printmaking, and beyond.
