Arts Library

This exhibit features recent acquisitions for the Arts Library's collection of artists' books, including works by Peter Coffin, Karen Hanmer, Terry Horrigan, Paul Johnson, Emily Martin, and Lisa Melhorn-Boe. Started in 1985 with the first of two large purchases from Los Angeles collector Judith A. Hoffberg, the library's collection focuses on artists' books as agents of social change, the book as a conceptual space, and artists' books that pay self-conscious attention to book structure. The exhibit was organized by Arts Librarian Robert Gore.
