Artists' Books Collection


Formalized in 2016, the Seattle Art Museum Libraries Books Arts Collection encompasses artists’ books, zines, and prints. This digital exhibition represents only some of the artists’ books in our Book Arts Collection; view a full list of these holdings. These works of art make use of the book as a format; their structures and techniques support and/or enhance the content of the work. This selection represents many regional artists, but has an international scope. Themes of identity, place, and community run through many of the works. Multiple images are included for each work. This digital collection was conceived of and produced as an MLIS capstone project for the University of Washington Information School.
