A number of universities and other institutions have artists' books collections. Below are some that have parts of their collections digitized.
This is a joint exhibition between Special Collections & University Archives and the Design Library. It highlights artists' books that relate to themes in this year's common reading selection, Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates. The books on view address race, identity, privilege, capitalism, education, diaspora, and family - as lived, studied, observed, and expressed by a variety of artists.
