Keith Smith has made 260 books over 41 years ranging from one-of-a-kind artist's books to poetry, textbooks and dictionaries. Since the late 1960s, he has had a tremendous impact on artists of the book, bookbinders and printmakers through both his personal work and his textbooks. This exhibit, curated by Smith, is a retrospective selection of his favorite work and will feature the innovative structures and image-making for which he is renown.

Smith has received two Guggenheim Fellowships, a National Endowment for the Art (NEA), and other grants, including the Pollock/Krasner Foundation, Pilot Fine Art Still Photography Grant in 2002. His work is in the collections of the Museums of Modern Art of New York and San Francisco. Other museums include the Library of Congress of the United States of America; the Victoria and Albert, London; The National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; Bibliothèque Nationale, Paris; and the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography.
