Artists' Books: A Critical Anthology and Sourcebook
by Joan Lyons
Publisher's Description
This is the first in-depth anthology devoted to bookart, the work of artists who have chosen the book as their medium. The field has been growing over the last twenty years as artists have become increasingly fascinated with the interplay between the different communication modes of language and visual forms. The survey contains essays by longtime participants and observers, such as Ulises Carrion, Lucy Lippard, Clive Phillpot, Shelley Rice, and Alex Sweetman. Critical essays dealing with such issues as tradition, potential, and contemporary work are supplemented by bibliographies and lists of collections.
