Outsider Art Library

First coined by Roger Cardinal in the 1970s, "Outsider art" is an umbrella term for art made by the mentally ill—art that is distinguished by visionary and/or obsessive qualities, or the development of fantasy worlds and individual mythologies. Below is a selection of our leading titles on outsider artists, from the 18th-micrographic marvels of Matthias Buchinger to Horst Ademeit's Polaroid photographs of unseen negative forces permeating everyday objects.
