The Artists’ Book Collection

As part of the Special Books Collection we have a range of about 250 artists’ books which show an amazing range of formats, content, materials and techniques to explore the concept of the book.

There are many different types of materials used, such as fabric, string and even slate, and techniques include folding, cutting, collage, binding and ‘altering’ existing books to transform them into something else.

The collection can be used as an inspiration and launch pad to inspire your own creative work.

Come and visit the collection in the Materials Room (Sheppard Library Basement) which is usually open from 11am – 4pm Monday to Friday (term-time).

Please contact Marion (m.syratt-barnes@mdx.ac.uk) for an appointment outside these hours, or for more information.
