ArtistBookWhat is an artist's book?

Artists’ books are not just about art, but are also considered actual works of art in and of themselves. Usually produced in limited editions, these "books" can be created out of anything, thus challenging and expanding our notion of what "books" are. The Scribner Library owns many artists' books which are part of the Department of Special Collections. And the Library is continuously adding new ones! This exhibit contains some of their most recent acquisitions.

Curated by Marina Filisky '12 for the Honors Forum Citizenship Project

The exhibit will be on display in the Harris Lobby in the Scribner Library through December.

To learn more about some of the artists’ books in Special Collections, see Artists' Books from Special Collections.
