Artists' Books by GSA Students Purchased for Library Collection

The Library currently has a small display of recent artists' books by GSA students that have been purchased for the Library's Artists' Books Collection. The display features interpretations of texts by Hemingway, Saki, Calvino and H. P. Lovecraft, and can be seen on the top floor of the Main Library next to the current journals.
The GSA Library has a superb and comprehensive collection of artists' books, featuring examples of work by internationally important artists such as Doug Aitken, Angela Bulloch, Olafur Eliasson, David Shrigley, Ian Hamilton Finlay, Peter Greenaway, Mike Nelson, and Thomas A. Clark.
