A book is a piece of art in itself. You can turn this piece of art into a new form of art. I have published art made of books before (see the category “Art”). Today I present you with a couple of links that have to do with the book celebrated as a piece of art.
The first link is that to the Polish book art museum. The site is (also) in English. If you are planning to visit Poland, this museum seems like an interesting stop. You can find the website of the museum here.
The next link is to an exhibition in the New York Public Library. The exhibition is about French book art. Even though the exhibition is no longer running, the page provides for interesting reading. To be found here.
The Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond (US) has a collection of book art that counts over 3,000 items. The collection lives in the James Branch Cabell Library. You can learn more about the collection here.
The last link is to the website of the Center for Book Arts in New York. On their site you will find everything that has to do with book arts. Including (travelling) exhibitions. Find out more here.
