Re: [BKARTS] 1990's Book Arts Conference at Iowa / Clive Phillpot


Not sure if it is still current but the last email I have for Clive from a
couple of years ago is:  cfilpot@xxxxxxxxxx

Incidentally, Franklin Furnace did not "donate" the FF collection to MoMA,
it was sold.

If anyone does have the list of the 144 terms you mention, it would be great
to share them with the list. I would very much like to see them.

Johanna Drucker at the University of Virginia and her ABsOnline project
investigated similar issues along with her advisory groups. See:

Hello All,

I'm an graduate student in Art History at the Pratt Institute, and I am
working on a thesis about the issues of conservation, exhibition,
definition and historiography of artists' books.

I have two questions that I was hoping the listserv's participants may
have answers to:

1) Does anyone have Clive Phillpot's email address? I know he is a
retired independent consultant in England now. I would like to exchange
a few emails with him about conservation, exhibition and library
practices for artists' books.

2) Does anyone have any information about an international conference
that took place sometime before 1993 at the University of Iowa about
artists' books? What I do know is that Franklin Furnace was a major
player at the conference, it was right around the time they donated
their archives to MoMA, and that the conference dealt with "the
documenting and the cataloging of artists' books" and led to a
contribution of "144 terms to the Art and Architecture Thesaurus that
serve[d] to define its field" (from Franklin Furnace's website). Did any
of you attend this conference? Were conference notes printed? Does
anyone have the list of terms? or a list of participants in the
conference? Any and all information would be much appreciated!

Thanks for any help!
