ABOUT THE EXHIBITION: Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director, Jen Larson, Collections Specialist, and the Collections Committee, The Center for Book Arts, New York.
For the past two years, the Center for Book Arts has been involved in a Collections Initiative, which involves the in-depth cataloging and preservation of our extensive collection of artist books, prints, catalogues, and ephemera. This exhibition marks the culmination of the three-year Collections Initiative. The exhibition will offer an overview of the history and development of book arts over the past 40 years, and examine the role of the Center for Book Arts in both nurturing and promoting innovative artists and preserving traditional artistic practices. All works in the exhibition can also be viewed through the Center for Book Arts’ online collections database.
