Featured Periodical: JAB, The Journal of Artists’ Books


JAB35 | Spring 2014

We love this journal, both for the writing and for the artists’ books that are typically included in each issue. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure, spend a little time with JAB! From http://www.journalofartistsbooks.org/:

The Journal of Artists’ Books provides a platform for both theoretical and creative expression. As a forum for the study of artists’ books, JAB publishes critical and theoretical articles, reviews of artists’ books and exhibitions, and commentary on conferences and and other book art-related activities. JAB also regularly showcases creative work in the form of artists’ statements and artist-designed pages and covers.
As a book art project itself, each issue of JAB embodies an interest in all aspects of the production of the journal, incorporating different design elements for each issue and, whenever possible, JAB staff do all the printing of the journal. JAB also sometimes includes various artist-created inserts and booklets or has had the covers letterpress-printed by the designing artist. JAB is published twice a year in the spring and fall at The Columbia College Center for Book and Paper Arts.
