Manhattan Laboratory Museum, Given similar experiences, needs and environments, parallel developments have occurred throughout history in not only fields of science and medicine but in the arts as well. The addition of the book to the vocabulary of artist’s devices has resulted in the creation of book-like objects both here and abroad. This exhibition, though modest in size presents a wide range of non-paper books from artists residing in New York, Illinois, California, Oregon, and from Germany. The art viewer here has an opportunity to see both the diversity and kinship of these works and at the same time, rethink his/her definition of “book”.
