Artists’ books: from the collection of the Burnie Regional Art Gallery
By definition, artists’ books are works of art that usually take the form of a book but are unique or have a very limited publication.
The Burnie Gallery permanent collection holds several very good examples that have come through the Burnie Print Prize or though purchases.
Artists’ books can combine photography, calligraphy, poetry, drawing, hand-made or commercial papers, graphic design and of particular interest for our collection: printmaking.
We are very fortunate in Burnie to hold a boutique collection of artworks on paper as prints, drawings, sketches and also as artists’ books.
