One of the many gems of Rochester, New York is the Artist Book Archive (formerly Independent Press Archive) in the Research Center at Visual Studies Workshop. As a graduate student at VSW I regularly frequent the archive for inspiration and research. Recently, in preparation for the Open House event last month, I curated a display showcasing a selection of the artists’ books. If you’re in the ROC area or up for a trip you should come by for a visit!
Do you have a resource similar in your area? I would love to hear about it.
