Artists’ Books online and Symposium

A selection of artists’ books has been launched online on VADS from the bookRoom collection at the University for the Creative Arts (UCA).

bookRoom is an experimental post-digital research and publishing platform within the School of Fine Art and Photography at UCA, led by Emmanuelle Waeckerlé.

Due to copyright restrictions it is usually quite difficult to view artists books online, so this is a great resource to browse a selection of artists books online, mostly by students and staff from UCA.

VADS is a unique online collection of over 140,000 images from over 300 different UK collections – all available free for non-commercial use in education. VADS covers the broad range of the creative arts including applied arts, architecture, design, fashion, fine art, and media.
