Chapter 3. Artists' Books as Academic or Didactic Document

An interesting aspect of the artist's book is its use as a carrier of academic or didactic information.

It may operate as a technical guide like Jo Ractliffe and Pippa Skotnes' Mordant Methods (Cat: 201) or as part of a body of academic research at tertiary Fine Art institutions e.g. Susan Lowdermilk's Interior Passage (Cat: 107) and Liz Vels' Logos as Artefact (Cat: 223).
