The Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection (JFABC) brings together over twelve 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.
The Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection provides services and access to collections through individual appointments, class visits, instruction sessions, and research consultations. Visiting the Joan Flasch Artists' Book Collection requires an appointment; please JFABC@saic.edu to schedule an appointment or for help. The Library and Special Collections are considered instructional spaces, so masks are still required while in our space. Please see the Make Together page for details.
