Artists' Books at UVM: Find Artists' Books

This guide provides information for students, artists and researchers looking for artists' books. It also identifies reference sources, journals and online resources.

Finding Artists' Books

Search the library catalog

  • Search by the title and by the names of individual artists and private presses. 
  • Some useful subject search terms include: artists’ books, toy and movable books, miniature books.
  • The same terms can be used in keyword phrase searches (select as a phrase).  Terms associated with book construction and design (for example, accordion binding) may also be used in keyword searches. 

Consult a librarian
Because it can be difficult to find artists’ books on a particular topic using the catalog, individuals are encouraged to contact Special Collections librarians for assistance.  A knowledgeable staff member will be glad to assemble a group of books to meet specific interests in a topic, binding style or technique.  Send an e-mail to Special Collections at or call 656-1493 to arrange an individual selection.
