Books foregrounds the primacy of the artist’s book as an artistic medium at Ivorypress. Introductory essays explore the conceptual underpinnings of the Ivorypress Artists’ Books Collection and the history of the artist’s book. Through sixteen richly illustrated entries, Books chronicles the complex, varied, and often laborious production processes for each of the artists’ books. On the occasion of its twenty-fifth anniversary in 2021, Ivorypress is organising a multi-institutional exhibition in collaboration with museums, libraries and universities in Spain, United Kingdom, Germany, and the United States, and publishing a three-volume book that chronicles the history of Ivorypress since 1996, using a variety of primary sources that range from oral histories and archival documents to pictorial records and texts.
Words, Books, and Stories consider the many facets of Ivorypress activity as a means of reflecting on the history of the artist’s book as a medium and of generating new ideas in art publishing for current and future generations of creators, historians, and students. By critically examining these materials, engaging in a series of interviews, and developing scholarship on past exhibitions, publications, and curatorial activities, these volumes seek to amplify the scholarship on the medium of the artist’s book.
