Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book provides in-depth readings and analyses of many individual artists' books, and establishes a useful international overview. Topics discussed include: "Visual Deviants and Typographical Departures", "Various Ways of Frustrating Our Reading Habits", "Altering Books: The Cutting Edge of Editing", "The Book, the Museum, and Public Art", and "Narratives and Verbal Manipulations". Among the artists discussed are some of the foremost practitioners of this important and flourishing medium including: Teller Stokes, Helen Douglas, Susan King, Janet Zweig, Dieter Roth, Tom Phillips, Buzz Spector, Christian Boltanski, Johanna Drucker, and many others. Two eminent scholars give their considerable attention to a broad range of artists' books.

Book News Annotation:

Calling themselves critics rather than art historians, the Huberts evince an astonishingly vast familiarity with the medium of artists' books, which they survey in the present volume. The works are discussed in groups according to theme and/or format and include works by an international group of artists. In addition to frequent b&w illustrations, a group of color plates are included. Distributed by Distributed Art Publishers.
