Curating the IN GALLERY (Week 2 – Artist’s Books Collection)

The In Gallery presents:

ARTISTS’ BOOKS COLLECTION – TECHNIQUES OF PRINT

Changing display, 13th October – 20th October

Books selected from the Artists’ Books collection courtesy of Llandaff Library’s Special Collections – located on the 2nd floor of L Block.

CSAD Artists’ Books Collection:

“A growing collection of over 200 artists’ books dating from the 1960s. Some are one-off pieces while others are limited editions created by the artists. The Collection demonstrates the breadth and depth of the artist book genre and some material is of national and international significance.”

Displayed in this exhibition is a selection of books from the vast collection of artists’ books that the library holds. This exhibition showcases a diverse range of printing techniques.

This week the gallery space is taken over by explosive colour and highlights the rich tones created in printing processes.

Not only are these books inspiring themselves but they will hopefully encourage people to go and look at the artist’s book collection in the library as it is exciting to see the many inventive ways that books can be created.
