This book presents around 450 different book artists. Mainly from Sweden, many though internationally active, but also quite a few from Denmark and Germany.
The only way to really see the Swedish scene must include neighbouring artists, because artists’ books is a genre that know no limits – whether national or artistical.
This is indeed the first survey of artists’ books from a Swedish point of view. Each chapter is an essay, a way to see and understand artists ́ books from different views – like The social room, The Body, Berlin, The workshop, The library and archive etc.
Each chapter has a story of its own.
