DESCRIPTION

Throughout history, many artists have approached the book as a particular kind of challenge: an invitation to imagine its form and its future in their own terms. The merging of narrative and image has a rich history that spans thousands of years—from cave drawings to illuminated manuscripts, the visions of William Blake, and contemporary books—but the artist’s book only came into its own as a recognized genre in the twentieth century. Join prominent historians, artists, curators, and scholars as we explore the past, present, and future of this vital, engaging art form.
