Artists’ Publishing Part I.

Artists’ Publishing Part I. Artists’ Books by various contributors. Exhibition at Bower Ashton Library, UWE, Bristol, UK. Images from the exhibition website.

A selection of books which will form part of the larger New Wave exhibition of artists’ publishing later this year (at Impact Printmaking Conference in September).

These books have been chosen to demonstrate some of the areas of interest in our AHRC supported research project see

We are not concerned with categorising books by format, these publications are concerned with content; a small mirror of the world, books that are political, observational, reflective, humorous, calls to action, treatises, books that talk to each other, books that question our relationship with both the word and the world."

Please also help out with their Artists’ Books Survey (2008-2009), which is open until the end of July. The survey can be done online (or by posting it in) and sits alongside the ABTREE diagram. Your altered ABTREE diagram will be included on the exhibition wall at CFPR's conference in July and at the Impact conference in September.
