Banff Centre Blog Post About Book Arts

One of my automatic Google Searches turned up this blog post from the Banff Centre. It first caught my attention because I am a big fan of Yoko Ono’s artwork and her Box of Smile wasn’t a piece I’d seen before.

But then, as I read through the blog about the Paul D. Fleck Library and Archives and their collection of artists’ books (more than 3,800 !) I thought I’d add it to my list of places to visit – and share it with you, too.

The blog also discusses what is an “artist’s book”, what is book art and whether book art makes a sound investment for collectors. Whether you agree with their perspective or not, it is an interesting read. Artists’ books and book art: A conversation with our art librarian.
