Artists' books : the book as a work of art, 1963-1995 by Stephen Bury( Book )

23 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and held by 442 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The spread of printing in the 16th century severed the relationship between artist and book, but modern developments in technology - such as lithography and desk-top publishing - have enabled this relationship to be restored. This book, which explores the history of artists' involvement with the book format in the 20th century, provides the historical, philosophical and artistic background for practitioners and art historians. The book considers the pre-history of the artist's book, beginning with the work of Mallarme and Apollinaire, Cubist, Futurist, Dada and Fluxus books; the upsurge of manifesto, serial and conceptual works of the 1960s and 1970s and the growth of a self-conscious artists' books tradition in the 1980s and 1990s. The development of the artists' books are placed in the context of technological changes and movements in the history of modern art. Comprehensive reference material is provided by a bibliographic listing of over 500 key artists' books, an exhibition chronology, invaluable practical advice for the collector and librarian and an extensive index

Artists' multiples, 1935-2000 by Stephen Bury( Book )

14 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 284 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The artist's multiple is perhaps the art of the twentieth century. If in the nineteenth century art could be seen as distinct from products of industry, in the early twentieth century industry could confidently project itself as art. The artist's multiple, in its delight in reproducibility, industrial fabrication, and new processes and materials, exemplifies this trend. This book explores the historical background of the multiple, examining its relationship to the jeu d'esprit of the artist's studio, the readymade, constructivism, the store and the everyday. It looks at the work of Marcel Duchamp, George Maciunas, Joseph Beuys, and Felix Gonzalez-Torres as well as contemporary practice, such as 'The Multiple Store'." "An illustrated and chronologically arranged catalogue of over 800 multiples produced between 1935 and 2000 provides a wide selection of different approaches by artists to the medium. A chronology, glossary and detailed bibliography are also included."--Jacket
At the turn of the centuries : the influence of early 20th century book arts on contemporary artists' books : three essays adapted from conference presentations given at Yale University on April 13, 2007 by Stephen Bury( Book )

4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This publication presents the essays of scholars Stephen Bury and Marcia Reed and artist Angela Lorenz on the relationship between contemporary and early-twentieth-century bookworks. Originally presentations at a 2007 conference of the same name, At the Turn of the Centuries is a permanent documentation of the presenters<U+2019> ideas. The lecture and this publication also honor the late Tony Zwicker, an important advocate of artists<U+2019> books. Stephen Bury considers the text engine as a generative device from Jonathan Swift to Oulipo. Marcia Reed discusses how certain formats, particularly boxes, and methodologies, such as an artist's documentation of their own work or experience, are recurring themes in the 20th century bookworks. Angela Lorenz discusses from the artist's point of view the incorporation of historic and unexpected sources into bookworks. -- Publisher's description
