Join Curator Juli McLoone for a walk through our Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) collections through the lens of artist’s books. The SCRC collects artist’s books, but does not have an artist’s book collection. Instead, artist’s books may be found spread throughout the collections and topical collecting areas of SCRC, from artist’s books that play with the genre of children’s alphabet books to Emily Martin’s three-dimensional Shakespeare adaptations, to works like The Diabolical History of the Chicken by Laura Ladendorf that engage with our culinary past and present.

The tragedy of Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, by Emily Martin, 2012; held in the U-M Library, Special Collections Research Center.
