Artists’ books are publications that have been conceived as artworks utilizing the form of the book. They are distinct from fine printed books or books displaying art, as book artists envision unprecedented possibilities for the artwork. FSU Special Collections & Archives holds a collection of over 250 artists' books spanning a diverse range of themes, bindings, structures, materials, and narrative styles.
All items in the artists’ book collection can be found in the FSU Libraries Catalog Advanced Search - https://fsu-flvc.primo.exlibrisgroup.com/discovery/search?vid=01FALSC_FSU:Home&lang=en&mode=advanced
A spreadsheet listing the books by title, author, date, publisher, theme, and binding/structural/printing method can also be downloaded below:
