Page to Wall (Tremlett),” Art Book, 2010.

The term ‘artist's book’ first acquired its current use in connection with artists working in the late 1960s who were looking for new ways of exploring ideas, often related to processes or performances. Such a book might be a unique object or have multiple copies, but in either event it was intended as an artwork. In this respect ‘artists' books’ differ in conception not only from studies and catalogues, but also from fine editions of literary texts that include autographic illustrations.
