About this title


Calling themselves critics rather than art historians, the Huberts evince an astonishingly vast familiarity with the medium of artists' books, which they survey in the present volume. The works are discussed in groups according to theme and/or format and include works by an international group of artists. In addition to frequent b&w illustrations, a group of color plates are included. Distributed by Distributed Art Publishers. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (

From Library Journal:

Artists' books are, in some ways, similar to "installations"Athey're multi-media experiments, often constructed of unorthodox materials, and they draw upon a mix of disciplines (literature, photography, graphic arts, typography, painting, bookbinding, and papermaking). In this unconventional study, the Huberts investigate 40 fairly recent books quite seriously, examining their shapes and their use of materials, colors, images, and textAno matter how obscure, nonsensical, or deliberately illegible. Yet no biographical information is given about the artists, many of whom are French. And although the index is thorough, the bibliography lists several works that, curiously, seem to have nothing to do with the subject at hand (e.g., a treatise on magnetism from 1600). Only readers who are seriously interested in artists' books and willing to wade through dense prose will find anything of interest here. For specialized collections.AMargarete Gross, Chicago P.L.
