Blurred Library: Essays on Artists’ Books

Despite the fact that the field of artists’ books has grown steadily since the mid-sixties, the discourse has been largely under- theorized. BLURRED LIBRARY: ESSAYS ON ARTISTS’ BOOKS, is a stunning collection of the most revered essays by Tate Shaw, the Director of Visual Studies Workshop. For years, Shaw’s contributions to the field of artists’ books as a theorist, artist, writer, historian, and teacher have been celebrated internationally, but have largely gone undocumented, until now. Shaw’s versatility as a scholar and artist allow him to take a holistic approach to his subject that is historical, conceptual, anecdotal, contemplative, and engaging. BLURRED LIBRARY is an indispensible contribution to the field of artists’ books, essential reading for emerging and seasoned artists and scholars alike. Lavishly illustrated throughout by photographer Doug Manchee.
