The Book as Art: Highlights from the Book Arts Collection
Now through Sun, December 1, 2019 5:00 P.M.
Print and Picture Collection at
Parkway Central Library
While artists have illustrated books for centuries, an artists’ book is a medium unto itself. Artists’ books draw inspiration from the form or the function of a book to create a piece of artwork. Depending on the artist’s intent, the book may be limited to one copy or could be editioned to make many. These books are often constructed by hand, but may feature mass-produced components.
The books on view represent a selection of artists’ books housed in the Print and Picture Collection. For more information on the collection, visit www.freelibrary.org/pix.
