Booking required?

State Library reopens Sunday 4 July. You must check in and wear a mask during your visit (unless you have a lawful reason not to). Please see our alerts page for the latest information.

Artists' books are artworks that use the form or characteristics of a book. With both traditional and contemporary approaches, artists’ books happily unbridle themselves from the constraints of traditional publishing.

State Library of Queensland holds one of the largest publicly available collections of artists' books in Australia. New Acquisitions displays 17 artists’ books new to the collection in 2019, profiling Queensland artists such as Zoe Porter, Matthew Newkirk, Barry Smith and Jennifer Stuerzl.

Be delighted and intrigued with the New Acquisitions to our Artists’ Books Collection.
