The Library's Artist Made Book collection contains a variety of works to provide students and the public with a solid foundation to the Book Arts. Artist Made Books come in many forms. Some examples are sculpture, altered books, collage, photography and fine press. In brief, they are books in which the form is as important as the content.
There are works from around the world in the collection. These works are treasured because they were all made here in our home state. Arizona is home to the Herberger Institute School of Art at Arizona State University and the University of Arizona's School of Art and where faculty and students have created amazing work. There are also many local artists and presses who have produced excellent works.
