Art In City Hall (AICH), an initiative of the City’s Office of Arts, Culture and the Creative (OACCE) presents Variations on the Artist Book – the Philadelphia Center for the Book Members Exhibition

56 artists from the Philadelphia region explore what is meant by an artist book — the complex amalgam of image making processes, kinds of imagery, structure, text, and materials that go into such a book.  Variations on the Artist Book celebrates the book as a vital contemporary art form and the diverse community of institutions and individuals whose passion is books.
