Books made or conceived by artists.
What are artists' books?
Artists' books are books made or conceived by artists.
Artists' books that maintain the traditional structure of a book are often known as book art or bookworks, while those that reference the shape of a book are known as book objects.
“Artists’ books are books or book-like objects, over the final appearance of which an artist has had a high degree of control; where the book is intended as a work of art in itself.” (Bury, 1995, p.1). Bury, S. (1995) Artists’ books : the book as a work of art, 1963-1995. Aldershot: Scholar Press.
