Artists' books have flourished in recent decades, and many women artists have
explored the intimacy, complexity, and diversity of the book form.  These
books make use of conventional and innovative methods of production, from
calligraphy and diaristic collage to handprinting, offset production, and
digital technology.  Johanna Drucker provides an overview of artists' books
produced by women as well as the key roles played by women in the field.

Drucker has been printing her own typographically innovative editions since
1972, and her books have part of special collections and exhibitions in
libraries, galleries, and museums throughout the United States and elsewhere.
 In addition, her recent scholarly publications include: Theorizing
Modernism: Visual Art and teh Critical Tradition, The Alphabetic Labyrinth,
and The Century of Artists' Books.  She received her Ph.D. from the
University of California, Berkeley, in 1986 and is currently associate
professor in the Department of the History of Art a Yale University.
