A book arts project on microfilm which can be viewed at UWE Bower Ashton Library, Bristol from 3rd - 30th November 2009
A series of selected artists' books curated by Abigail Thomas have been turned into a reel of microfilm for a touring exhibition. The work will be accessed through microfilm readers in participating libraries and archive centres. The books selected relate to the history of artists' books, archives and libraries, or challenge the preconceptions of the future of document preservation.
All the books are shown one after the other on one 35mm reel of microfilm. Artists include: Lucy Harrison, Dorothy Smallman, Kim Pilgrim, Lynne Williams, Pilar Cortes, Borbonesa & Emitron, Esther Yarnold, Sarah Bodman, Annabel Ralphs, Kate Gallon, Csaba Pal, Laura Guy, Kit Merritt, Hanne Matthiesen, Ann Willmott, Abigail Thomas and Kerri Cushman.
