Discussing materials in the Richard Minsky Archive (AOB 8)

Short interviews with book artist Richard Minsky about specific items in the Archive are available.

Recounted with Minsky’s characteristic humor, the interviews are entertaining as well as educational.

Richard Minsky is a leading figure in the book arts community. As founder of the Center for Book Arts in New York City, he created a model for artist-driven teaching and exhibit space that has been emulated across the country. As a practicing artist, he advocated for book art to be considered fine art (not craft) and made book-based work that was shown in established art galleries of New York City before the current book art renaissance.
