Re: [BKARTS] Artists' books and exhibitions



Not sure about exhibiting books that you cannot handle. Paintings hang on a
wall to be looked at, but books sit on a shelf to be read. If you can't open
and read it, surely, it is not a book. Books are meant to be handled. If they
can't survive that, they can't be very good books!  Of course, they might be
works of Art, but that is something else??
