Artists' Books

The new exhibition on the Ground Floor of The Sheppard Library shows examples of our artists’ books, which form part of the Special Books Collection, housed in the Materials Room.

Recently we have added lots of new titles to the collection, showing different formats, materials and conceptual interpretations of the book.  Some of these new items are featured in this display. 

There is a focus on specific artists including Katsumi Komagata who specialises in books for visually impaired children with beautifully coloured papers, textures and cut-out techniques. Kate Farley (whose books are illustrated here) is a freelance artist and designer working on paper and fabric.

The exhibition continues until the end of September.
