New Resource: The Smithsonian Libraries Artists’ Books Collection Online
From the Smithsonian Libraries Unbound Blog:
The Smithsonian Libraries is pleased to announce the new webpage of the Smithsonian Libraries Artists’ Books Collection!
The Artists’ Books Collection includes hundreds works of art in book form across numerous branches at the Smithsonian Libraries, spanning the 20th century through today, including works by artists such as Georges Adéagbo, Ida Applebroog, Julie Chen, Laura Davidson, Barbara Kruger, Sol LeWitt, Luan Nel, Yoko Ono, Ed Ruscha, and Claire Van Vliet. While some books in the collection are fairly common or are multiples, many are limited editions or unique and cannot be seen anywhere else but at the Smithsonian Libraries. The site serves as the portal to search or browse the entirety of the collection across the branches, to provide information about collection access, and to highlight book arts related happenings, projects and acquisitions at the Smithsonian Libraries.
