Jenny McInally – Specimen Case

Exhibition of Artists’ Books

We have organised an exhibition of artists’ books in Liverpool’s Central Library. Based in the Hornby Library, which houses many rare books, this will open on 2nd June and continue until 6th July. The exhibition is available to view whenever the Library is open, and entry is free.

The exhibition will combine examples of early artists’ works and fine bookbinding from the Library’s specialist collection and a range of contemporary artists’ books. We want the exhibition to celebrate excellence and creativity, and to increase interest and appreciation of artists’ books. The intention is that the exhibition will also promote the Fair: we aim to include some examples of works by Fair participants in the exhibition, as well as by other contemporary artists.

We are proud to present work by…
