The Artists’ Books Collection consists of nearly 120 artists’ books and 10 artists’ books reference items. The collection is housed in the Manning Clark Room in the SCU Library in proper preservation and storage conditions.
The Collection includes books by notable artists. International artists include Dieter Roth, Tara O’Brien, Sarah Bodman and Christian Boltanski. Australian artists represented include Robert Jacks, Doug Spowart, Ron Burnie and Judy Watson.
Southern Cross University has until recently held an annual or biennial Acquisitive Artists’ Book Award and artists’ books were chosen from the exhibition for inclusion in the library collection. These include works by Monica Oppen (Botanikos), Victoria Cooper (Googling up 10+) and Tacee-Lea Jones (Just turn the key).
