Artists' books are works of art realized in the form of a book. They are often published in small editions, though sometimes they are produced as one-of-a-kind objects referred to as "uniques". Artists' books have employed a wide range of forms, including scrolls, fold-outs, concertinas or loose items contained in a box as well as bound printed sheet. Artists have been active in printing and book production for centuries, but the artist's book is primarily a late 20th century form.

In the early 1970s the artist's book began to be recognized as a distinct genre, and with this recognition came the beginnings of critical appreciation of and debate on the subject. Institutions devoted to the study and teaching of the form were founded, library and art museum collections began to create new rubrics with which to classify and cataloged artists' books and also began to actively expand their fledgling collections.

Since Artists’ books are pretty rarely on view in galleries and museums we are proud to show works from the 60’s to now with a focus on unique works.
