Transforming artist books

A project at the Tate explored how digital transformations are changing the way artists books are created, accessed, and explored.     It harkens back to the Hampshire College Library’s program on “Non Visible and Intangible: Artists Books Respond to E-Books” a year ago.        The Tate’s project focuses on how so many artists books are largely inaccessible to most potential viewers.       At Hampshire College Library, we are trying to make our artists book collection and other special collections more visible to our users by posting new acquisitions on a Tumblr page.     We also just had Sura Levine (Hampshire Professor of Art History) bring her Books, Book Arts, Artists Books, Bibliophilia class to view many of our treasures in the Bradford Room on the 2nd floor of the library.  If you ever come across a book in the Library Catalog that has the location “HC Special Collections”  please emailbookartsclass me so that we can set up a time to pull out this great stuff and show it off.
