Scope and Contents

This book consists of five essays on artists books with extensive footnotes and a detailed bibiliography. Lucy Lippard is quoted on Artist Books as "not books about art, or on artists, but books as art. They can be all words, all images, or combinations thereof. At best they are a lively hybrid of exhibition, narrative, and object." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
