Books on Books on Books…


This post is the first of a couple of bits of inspiration for this weeks explorations of Book-Binding, Sketchbooks, & Artist Books.Here’s a couple of solid resources on artist books, ranging from rarified artist books to self published zines.

Printed Matter, Inc – A distributor & appreciator of Artist Books.

Booklyn – A similar enterprise to Printed Matter, but it is an artist run non-profit.

The Franklin Furnace – This organization emerged in parallel to Printed Matter, and is more so an archive of artist books, now housed at MoMA.

Here’s a whole other index of Artist books which you can view.
