Throughout history, many artists have approached the book as a particular kind of challenge: an invitation to imagine its form and its future in their own terms. The merging of narrative and image has a rich history that spans thousands of years—from cave drawings to illuminated manuscripts, the visions of William Blake, and contemporary books—but the artist’s book only came into its own as a recognized genre in the twentieth century. Join prominent historians, artists, curators, and scholars as we explore the past, present, and future of this vital, engaging art form.

Free admission with paid entry to the museum.
