Today many artists adapt the form and materials of the book to communicate their content. There are traditional letterpress books with beautiful typography, fine bookbindings, artists' books, and sculptural bookworks.

In 1990 we organized Book Arts in the USA, an exhibition of 51 works, showing a wide variety of styles and book media. Click the green arrow to read the introduction by the exhibit's curator. It gives an overview of what Book Art is.
