Artist Book Collection

The Artist Book Collection at Paper Machine houses a rich resource of artist’s books for the city of New Orleans and surrounding areas. Envisioned as a teaching collection, ABC@PM collects artists’ books in all media, editioned and one-of-a-kind, on all variety of subject matter. Interdisciplinary by nature, artists’ books move through the crossroads of visual art, literary art, graphic design, printmaking, bookbinding, papermaking, and publishing. ABC@PM is particularly interested in books in which the structure and actions of reading are integral to the content and the ideas within.
