Exhibit – 'Artists' Books: Photography + Imagination'

Wednesday, January 2, 2019 - 9:00am to Friday, May 17, 2019 - 6:00pm

Books have a recognizable look and feel. With the creative investigations of spaces and places, artists' books reimagine design, materials, typography, words and images, including photography. Whether created by a single artist – or by a collaboration of artists, printers, binders, papermakers, poets or scholars – artists' books invite the reader to discover their rich structures and to experience them through a personal examination of their content.

This exhibit celebrates the history of these books and their makers, printers and designers. The works on display, part of the larger collection housed in University Libraries Special Collections, were made using a range of methods and materials and represent artists' books produced from the early 1900s through today. While the books cannot be handled, a video showcasing the books up close is available in the gallery.
