Kranz—Bloomsbury Review
"The Century of Artists' Books." The Bloomsbury Review (November/ December 2002).

Johanna Drucker, book artist and associate professor of contemporary art at Yale University, examines the 100-year development of artists' books, what she considers "the quintessential 20th-century artform." Her book fills a gap, as there are very few critical books about artists' books. Here she discusses some of the most well-known book artists and their work, including modernist artists such as Max Ernst, Marcel Duchamp, and Ed Ruscha, as well as more recent work. She deals with the themes of artists' book as idea and form, democratic multiple, rare object, visual form, verbal exploration, sequence, agent of social change, conceptual space, and document. There are numerous black-and-white reproductions of the works throughout the book.
