There is no shortage of independent artist book-making and self-publishing happening right now, but critical writing about artist books isn’t keeping up with production. Can we briefly stop to think about what people are actually making, in the midst of the sea of small edition and hard to find titles? In an effort to generate more reflective and critical thought about artist books, we asked friends in the field to write about 5 titles from the last 5 years. We hope to turn this into an annual series—our own attempt to capture some of what is most compelling from the scene—and take stock of what recent titles are important to the people that care about this kind of work.
