Artists' Books at Franklin & Marshall

Featured book

Welcome to Artists' Books @ F&M

   Franklin & Marshall College Library began collecting artists' books--Books As Art as opposed to books about art or on artists--in a deliberate way in 2006.  In nearly every sense the books comprise a teaching collection, the exception being the inclusion of books that relate to institutional identity.

   "Successful" artists' books have good marriages of form and (often-conceptual) content.  The library's collection represents many such unions.  And every work relates to the interdisciplinary nature of liberal arts education in some way.

   Associated areas of collecting include artists' book scholarship and technique books.  Both types enable students to incorporate the genre into their own academic and studio practices.  

~ enjoy exploring these pages on the scholarship and practice of making books ~
