The Artists' Books Showcase

The Artists' Books Showcase | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

The Artists' Books Showcase is a digital exhibition meant to highlight pieces in the Manuscript, Archive, and Rare Book Library's extensive collection of artists' books. These books, often made in small, limited editions, are pieces of art that purposefully make use of, question, or explore the format of the book as an artistic medium. Art historians trace the history of this form back to the limited editions of William Blake and William Morris, or to the livres d'artistes made by Surrealists and Dadaists, with the genre emerging as its own distinct art form in the 1960s. The works included here, dating from 1995 to the present, are meant to show what directions this unique art form is taking.
