Artists Books: A - C

Introduction

Although much debate surrounds the definition of artists books, simply put, they are art works in book or book-like form, produced in small editions, whose content concerns more than just words.

The following list is a visual finding aid for the artists books housed in the Art Library's rare book room. They are arranged alphabetically by author.

Artists books shelved in the open stacks are not included on this page. However, all artists books are listed in the online catalog and can be found by doing a subject search using the term artists books.
