Sarah Bryant is an assistant professor of Book Arts in the School of Library and Information Studies, where she teaches courses in letterpress printing, bookbinding, and artist books. Since 2005, Bryant has produced artist books under the name Big Jump Press. These books often use analytical imagery and reference material to address a wide range of topics, including archives, information design, urban planning, and the chemical composition of the human body. Her work can be found in dozens of libraries and private collections in the United States and abroad, including The Library of Congress, The New York Public Library, The Darling Bio-medical Library at UCLA, and The Yale Arts Library. In 2011, Bryant won the prestigious MCBA Prize, an international award given every two years to a single artist book. Bryant frequently collaborates with other artists as well as people working in other fields.
