Artists' books

The Library has a small but growing collection of contemporary artists' books. The collection was started in 1985 with the purchase of books created by students on a Bookworks course at Oxford Polytechnic. It now complements the Artists' Books collection held by the Fine Art Department by concentrating on text-based books.

This is a reference collection and is housed in the Library's Special Collections Reading Room.
