Take me to the archived exhibition.

The exhibition Contemporary Artists' Prints in Books features fine-press publications from the past two decades that include original prints by contemporary artists. The exhibition draws its selections from Special Collections' superb holdings in fine-press publications and the book arts, highlighting individual artists through their works in books. The prints in the exhibition demonstrate the range of styles, media, and techniques used with the printed word, the writer's text, and the magically revealing quality of the turned page, including etchings, engravings, woodcuts, wood engravings, linocuts, silkscreen prints, lithographs, aquatints, monoprints, computer graphics, and letterpress prints.

This exhibition was on display in the Special Collections Gallery from October 21, 1994-February 3, 1995.
