What is Bookness?

Artists’ books have an esteemed history dating back at least to Medieval manuscripts and even papyrus scrolls, but the concept seemed to really take flight, ironically, at the beginning of the end of the printed word, specifically in the 1970’s and 1980’s. Join me for an evening browsing through my extensive collection of artists’ books, book objects, and various artists’ artifacts: perhaps we can discover what it means to exude “bookness.” Bring a book to share.
