Artists Books: Vision – Form – Function
A Virtual Exhibit By Meredith Eliassen
What is a book?
How artists conceive of ways in which to evolve the book.
How the book as a medium and artifact becomes a container for ideas.
How by adding design, texture, and dimension do artists expand the functions of books.
The artists books in this exhibit present the book as messages, sculptures, abstractions, and tactile artifacts.
