New Guide to the Artists' Book Collection

A guide to the Library's extensive Artists’ Book Collection has just been uploaded to the website, and is available for download.
As well as introducing artists’ books and providing a bibliography, it also provides a thematic introduction to the works in our collection, under headings like Paranoia and Surveillance, Genetics, Environmentalism, Urbanism and the City, and The Unconscious. 3 or 4 examples, with illustrations, are given under each heading.
The guide will be a useful first port of call for readers who want to use the collection, but don’t know where to start with the 2000+ volumes we hold!
