The largest public collection of artists’ books in Australia is held at the State Library of Queensland, as part of the Australian Library of Art. The collection consists of around 1500 works featuring both Australian and overseas artists.

The Library positions the collection as ‘artworks that use the form or the concept of the book’, with the collection including works using a diversity of materials and methods of printmaking, binding, papermaking and other bookmaking technologies and wide ranging conceptual frameworks.

Much of the work is digitised, allowing for many an hour to be wiled away experiencing the collection from…anywhere.
