Artists' Book Cornucopia II
Abecedarian Gallery is thrilled to present this second annual international exhibition of artists’ books. On display from April 15 through June 4th in the main gallery, this is my favorite show of the year.
In addition to this online catalog, a print or pdf version of the catalog is available here.
Clicking an artists’ name at the left will link you to a page presenting their work. At the bottom of each page is a link to my email if you wish to order or have additional questions about any of the work.
Artists’ books, as defined by Wikipedia, are works of art realized in the form of the book. Works in this genre of interactive sculpture tend to be high in imaginative solutions, diverse in concept, rich in historical tradition and very well crafted.
Juried this year by Brea Black, Special Collections Librarian at the Topeka & Shawnee County Public Library in Topeka, Kansas, Artists Book Cornucopia II includes work that is traditional, non-traditional, unusual, familiar, dynamic, and challenging, representing the diversity in the field of book arts in 2011.
In her juror’s statement Ms. Black states
I agree that the future of the book arts is bright indeed and am pleased to offer ongoing opportunities for artists, enthusiasts and collectors to engage with this genre I find so rewarding. If you find yourself in the area, please do stop by as catalogs do little justice to the wonders and delight this exhibition holds.
