ARTBOOK LIBRARY BUILDING INSTALLATION
Furniture courtesy of R20th Century.
ARTBOOK works with private collectors, businesses and cultural institutions to build customized, curated libraries of the very best-and most collectible-books on art, photography, architecture and design by the world's most respected museum and independent publishers.
Whether a client wishes to build a general art book library or one that focuses on a particular subject-such as 20th Century Architecture, Design History, Art Photography, Contemporary Art, or specialties like Theory, Dada, Conceptual Art, Performance or Collage & Photomontage-we build to suit. We are pleased to build upon pre-existing libraries, or to start from scratch.
Past projects have ranged from consultations with complex international museum libraries to mid-sized gallery and boutique hotel collections to private, personal libraries for both new and seasoned collectors.
A well curated library is a personal statement and a solid investment. Many art books increase in value exponentially just a few years after they have gone out of print. With more than 20 years of experience in the art book business, ARTBOOK has the discerning eye and expertise to identify those books that will become the collectibles of the future.
To start your dream library, please send inquiries to: email@example.com.
