‘Mother Goose’ Exhibition; The Asahi Shimbun, The Bodleian Library of oxford Univerity, 1988.
A funny little book, this, printed in Japanese. ‘Mother Goose’ is a general term for the British nursery rhymes and children’s songs that have been passed down over generations. Here is a collection of illustrated song books spanning three centuries.
A Century of Artists Books; Riva Castleman, The Museum of Modern Art, 1994.
Exhibition catalogue. Compare and contrast with previous post.
Wish I could photograph every page - amazing stuff here.
Artists’ Books in the Modern Era 1870-2000 (The Reva and David Logan Collection of Illustrated Books); Robert Flynn Johnson, Thames and Hudson, 2002.
My favourite books are about other books. Clear signs of bookaholism.
