Communities of practice: Building an internationally connected practice in and for the book arts

Bodman, Sarah L.

Authors



Abstract

At the Centre for Fine Print Research at the University of the West of England in Bristol, UK, ‘book arts’ investigates contemporary artists’ book practice nationally and internationally. The findings from these research are disseminated freely and are accessible to a wide audience through the ‘bookarts’ website, where artists’ books projects, news, events, lectures, conferences, essays, published papers, symposia and exhibitions are archived online. We also have a section for research resources for students.
Our projects with artists’ books are inspired by and built upon the needs of artists in the international field. This includes publishing the Book Arts Newsletter to disseminate up-to-date news, The Blue Notebook journal in which artists and writers can publish non-traditional essays, and the Artist’s Book Yearbook, a biennial reference publication that surveys recent practice, critical writing and artists’ independent publishing. Our projects exist to help artists who are unsure if their work ‘fits’ into the field of book arts, and to give a voice to book artists so they can test their ideas, and begin a discussion with their peers.
