V&A and books
My friend and colleague Adrienne’s class had a field trip today to the National Art Library, housed in the Victoria & Albert Museum. I was able to tag along for the fun. We saw a sampling of their artist’s books collection. In case you’re wondering, I mean books created as works of art, not regular books written by or about artists. There were some pretty neat ones, especially a Flying Fish Press book that unfolded to create a cave, at the end of which lurked an octopus. Very cool.
