These four artists' books are unique because each contains distinct bounded works by individuals. While collaborative projects often synthesize ideas or methods, the individual works were kept whole and connected to the larger work through the book's form. While three of the works use the same printing techniques and materials, The Ladies Printing Bee, retained the materials and methods used by each individual artist.

These four works were generated by a group of individuals working together to support a single project. While other artists' books in this exhibit may include collaborators, these works notably recognized their collaborators.
