The visual syntax of printing is central in Clifton Meador’s work: the translation of photographs into inky versions that no longer look like photographs unpacks the supposed transparency of photography, and they make books that use those images to offer visual narratives of history, place, and identity. Printing and the materiality of a book are potentially metaphoric, and they use the production of a book as a way to find its form. They have worked as a pressman at several commercial, literary, and small press production facilities, including Open Studio, Nexus Press, and J. B. Richards. My books are in many collections of artists’ books, and they teach graphic design and graphic communications in the Department of Art at Appalachian State University.
