John M. Flaxman Library: Additional Collections
Artistamp by Edgardo Antonio Vigo
The Correspondence Art digital library exposes a variety of intimate, postal themed works selected from collections housed in the Flaxman Library Special Collections. Included are examples of artists’ stamps, mail art, artists’ letters, and similar works. Some were collected fresh from the press or the artist’s hand. Others are well-marked by their travels. They provide a glimpse into some of the international networking practices of artists during the late twentieth century, prior to the widespread availability of the internet.
The Tony Zwicker Archives contain the business papers, ephemera, artists'/publishers' files, slides, catalogs and critical writings of Tony Zwicker, a New York-based dealer and collector of artists’ books and book works that she accumulated from 1982 through 2000.
The Zwicker archives are not cataloged but are viewable by appointment.
Warren Menaker Thought Books is a series of sketch books/diaries ranging from 1975 to 2006 document Menaker's observations while he lived and worked in Chicago, Illinois, and later in Phoenix, Arizona. Daily entries contain hand-written notes, drawings, and collages.
Viewable by appointment.
The Ephemera Files, part of Flaxman Library Special Collections, are on individual artists, publishers, presses, book art galleries, and other initiatives promoting experimental art forms.
Searchable via our Main Collection's catalog.
