Says Susie, of her selection of artists’ books:

“There is no definitive description of an artist book as by its very nature it is an elusive art form. The ECA Library’s collection reflects this. Artists’ books invite participation and the interplay between the viewer and the book creates an intimacy that isn’t found in other art forms. For me, an artist book should be a dialogue between form and content, each enhancing the other.”

This display completes Susie’s residency, following several very successful and well-attended workshops, where students were shown how to make their own books.
