Scope and Contents

This book deals with the making of artist books. The authors provide their definition of artist books, viz., "The Artist Book is produced and imagined by the artist himself, from the beginning to the end, in form and in content. The artist is the real craftsman of the book and it is only he that can make it into a "work of art." Therefore, it can be a single book or in a very limited edition, but always produced by the artist or in close collaboration with a publisher." -- Source of annotation: Marvin or Ruth Sackner.
