Artists' Books

Artists’ Books are books made and produced by artists. They are a contemporary art form. Artists' books address diverse ideas and subjects and can explore the book form, including sequence, structure and the space of the page. They are produced in limited or unlimited editions. Artists' books utilise the full spectrum of artistic processes, including printmaking, graphic design and bookbinding. Our Artists' Books collection is on open access in the Special Collections Reading Room. There is no need for students or staff to book an appointment to see them. It is however advisable for external visitors to book an appointment.
