EDIZIONI CORRAINI

Looking, Telling, Thinking, Collecting

Four Directions of the Artist's Book From the Sixties to the Present

Edited by Liliana Dermatteis, Giorgio Maffei, Anne Moeglin-Delcroix and Annalisa Rimmaudo.

This is a collection of seminal artists' books examined through four different avenues--looking, telling, thinking, and collecting. The "Looking" section is devoted to books that are not intended to be read, and so the shapes, colors, and subjects--sensual, austere, abstract, or realist--mainly address sight. In the "Telling" section, we look at the different ways in which a book can tell a story--both in literary genres and in animated pictures. "Thinking" includes conceptual artists' books, but is not confined to them: we also look at artists who use their books to criticize society, or imagine a different world. Lastly, "Collecting" illustrates the close affinity between the book and collecting, and shows how the artists' book has been indispensable in preserving many works-as events. These sections are united by essays that examine the current position of artists' books, as well as their genesis, and their future.
