Artists’ books talk

Sumi Perera, Clothes Encounters (detail of one page)


We had a great talk on artists’ books from Katherine Anteney at Cowprint last month. We were given a brief history from the 19th Century to present day which was so interesting and useful. Katherine showed us lots of examples from William Blake and Pierre Bonnard to Ed Ruscha and Dieter Roth to Ben Denver and Sumi Perera - and many others.

Need to investigate these further - so many interesting book artists out there.
