Artists’ Books from a Swedish Point of View

With special attention paid to the contributions of Denmark and GDR

Thomas Millroth

Ellerströms/Tragus & Walther und Franz König Verlag, 2021


In this book you will meet around 450 different book artists. Mainly from Sweden, many though internationally active, but also quite a few from Denmark and Germany. The only way to really see the Swedish scene must include neighbouring artists, because artists books is a genre that know no limits – whether national or artistical.
This is indeed the first survey of artists books from a Swedish point of view. Each chapter is an essay, a way to see and understand artists books from different views – like The social room, The Body, Berlin, The workshop, The library and archive etc. Each chapter being a story of its own.
