This is a Book cover. It was designed by Rebeca Méndez and written by Susan Kozel. We acquired it in 2018. Its medium is offset lithograph on paper. It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Closer by Susan Kozel represents an esoteric book project about dance and how digital technologies can track various social, physical and emotional changes within the body during performance. The object proposed for acquisition is the cover for the book. It depicts a "film" still of a dancing figure.
