An exhibition of contemporary British printers, binders and visual artists
Book Works was founded in London to promote the work of artists using the book form as their medium of expression. Their gallery provides a unique venue for work in this field, and they have been instrumental in encouraging artists to experiment and explore different ways of using book forms in their work.
All the artists in this exhibition have had a close and consistent relationship with Book Works since its inauguration. Some collaborate on projects as well as exhibit regularly at the gallery. The Founders of Book Works consider the Center for Book Arts inspirational in their conception and development of the organization, and this connection adds to the importance of our presentation of this work at the Book Arts Gallery.
Support for the Center for Book Arts’ visual arts programming is provided, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts, with the support of Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
