Artist Book Resources

  What Are Artist Books?..... 
Artists' books are not books about art; they are art expressed through book form.
When the content and form of a book are considered together, and given equal
significance, the book becomes more than a simple container for information.
The goal of many book artists is to involve the reader actively in the viewing process,
not only to see the words on the page, but also to think about how the words, pictures,
and physical form of the object all contribute to the meaning.
