  • "Clive Phillpot"

  • "This volume gathers together the essays written by Clive Phillpot since 1972 on the definition and development of artists' books. In his words, "Artists' books are understood to be books or booklets produced by the artist using mass-production methods, and in (theoretically) unlimited numbers, in which the artist documents or realizes art ideas or artworks." A former librarian at Chelsea School of Art in London, Phillpot became Director of the Library at the MoMA in New York in 1977, and mapped out the field of artists' books from an institutional point of view. Collaborating with Printed Matter and Franklin Furnace among other places dedicated to the medium of the book, Phillpot helped raise awareness to these objects, while giving them the necessary credentials to enter museums. The book is a first collection of these historical texts, manifestos, catalogues entries, and essays dedicated to Ed Ruscha's, Sol LeWitt's, Dieter Roth's, and Richard Long's books."
  • "El autor -apodado "el padrino de los libros de artistas"- concibe los libros de artistas como libros o folletos producidos por el artista utilizando medios de producción masiva, en cantidades (teóricamente) ilimitadas, en los que el artista documenta o pone de manifiesto teorías o trabajos artísticos. La publicación recoge los escritos de Phillpot acerca de la definición y evolución del libro de artista desde 1972 hsta el presente: textos históricos, manifiestos, prólogos de catálogos y ensayos sobre obras de Ed Ruscha, Sol LeWitt, Dieter Roth y Richard Long."
