Re: [BKARTS] Galleries and museums that feature artists' books?

Here are a few additions I might add:

The Arion Press Gallery in San Francisco has book-related exhibits, though perhaps more fine press oriented than book arts.

The current artists' book exhibit, Bibliophoria, at the Sebastopol Center for the Arts is **outstanding** (really, anyone in the Bay Area should make a trip out to see it), but I don't know if they regularly have artists books or not.

The University of Washington in Seattle has an extensive collection of artists books in Special Collections.  The books are all cataloged in an online, searchable database.  You can handle almost all of these books and with advance notice, the Book Arts and Rare Book Curator, Sandra Kroupa, can assemble a collection along a theme for you.  There is usually a good artists' book exhibit in the entrance way to the Special Collections section of the library.
