V&A's Artistsí books : interviews with artists



The artists respond to the following questions:
.
1) Do you consider yourself specifically a 'book artist' or just an 'artist'?
.
2) Do you have any formal education or training in the book arts? If not, what was your route into making artists' books?
.
3) What materials, techniques and themes do you use in your work?
.
4) Do your books continue in the tradition of the livre d'artiste in the early 20th century; follow in the footsteps of those reacting against the establishment (e.g. Ed Ruscha) in the 1960s; or use the book as a conceptual starting point to create book objects; or cross all these categories, or fit into none?
.
5) How do you see artists' books and the book arts in general sitting in relation to the contemporary art world?
.
6) To someone who doesn't know what artists' books are, which artists, or particular books would you advise them to look at?
