Artists books

Art books are about artists while artists’ books are books by artists. The latter can be considered as autonomous artworks.
Some artists like Lawrence Weiner and James Lee Byars designed the catalogues for their own expositions, and these can be considered artists’ books as well. Magazines produced by artists also fall in this category.

The order of the images is at random.
