The Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection (JFABC) brings together close to eleven thousand artists’ publications in all formats and media including: books, zines, multiples, video, and audio recordings, digital works, periodicals, and other unique works of art created by artists of local, national, and international significance. Focusing on materials published from the 1960s to the present, it is complemented by collections of reference works and exhibition catalogues to support in-depth research on artists’ publishing.
During the Spring 2021 semester, the Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection will continue to provide services and access to collections remotely through class visits, instruction sessions, and research consultations. Visit this page for more information about using the JFABC off-campus. However, the SAIC community also has limited in-person access to the collections by appointment only.
Please email JFABC@saic.edu to schedule an appointment or for help.
