Have you wondered how Special Collections acquires new artists’ books for our collection? Our dear friends over at Vamp and Tramp, a bookseller out of Birmingham, Alabama that travels to institutions to share a diverse arrangement of artists’ books from over 300+ presses and artists. Their joy when talking about and sharing artists’ books with our staff and patrons is contagious. We are incredibly grateful to have a bookseller that highlights and amplifies the voices of artists that practice art composed in book form, and we can’t wait to see some new work!
A few examples of some artists’ books that we have in our collection and sold through Vamp and Tramp are:
