Paula Frosch—Century of Artists’ Books
Frosch, Paula. "Review of The Century of Artists' Books." Library Journal (June 15, 1996).

A folded fan, a set of blocks, words embedded in lucite: artists' books are a singular form of imaginative expression. With the insight of the artist and the discernment of the art historian, Drucker (The Alphabet Labyrinth, LJ 2/ 15/ 95) details over 200 of these works, relating them to the variety of art movements of the last century an tracing their development in form and concept. This work, one of the first full-length studies available of artists' books, provides both a critical analysis of the structures themselves and a basis for further reflection on the philosophical and conceptual roles they play. From codex to document, from performance to self-image, the world of artists' books is made available to student and teacher, collector and connoisseur. A useful work for all art collections, both public and academic.
