South African Artists' Books

Johannesburg, Bunting Road Campus, Auckland Park

South African Artists' Books is a database which contains research into South African Artist’s Book Practice and Production. It contains textual research conducted on the recent history of South African artists’ books and book arts practice, interactive digital catalogues of three major exhibitions of South African artists’ books, a searchable database of all South African artists’ books thus far researched, links to related sites of interest as well as news and featured works.

The South African Artists' Books website was launched to coincide with the opening of the exhibition Navigating the Bookscape: Artists’ Books and the Digital Interface at the 2006 Aardklop Arts Festival and since then, other research projects around the book-as-an-artwork have been undertaken and the resultant exhibitions, book-objects as well as related textual research are included on the site.
