Blank book makers – Le Saloon du livre


“Word Rain or a discursive introduction to the intimate philosophical
investigations of G,R,E,T,A G, A, R, B, O, it says”, Madeline Gins,
1969, Grossman

Blank Book Makers In Memoriam Michael Gibbs – during Saloon du livre – is meant to address the latest developments in artists’ book history. An amazing corpus of new works makes up a most dynamic overview. There are many books dealing with topics such as emptiness, space, or the very substance of pages, and we deemed it necessary to look at the influence of books that have been published in neighbouring fields to that of the artist’s book or bookworks publications, in order for us to better define our investigation. Showing all facets and aspects through the most significant images was an option made difficult by the abundance of publications. We attempted to identify and showcase the current ideas and needs of the artist’s book medium.”
