Dimensional and Artists' Books

The Dimensional and Artists' Books collection is an eclectic collection that explores the nature and boundaries of the book form. The collection encompasses examples of fine letterpress printing as well as artists' books that alter, question, or play with the conventional experience of reading or otherwise using the book. Additionally, the collection includes miniature books as well as pop-up and movable books. We have especially strong holdings in works by Julian Wehr (1898-1970), the American master of animated children's books.
