Description
The personal collection of over 300 artists books and production ephemera created by Marshall Weber, Directing Curator and founder of Booklyn from 1977 through 2015
 
Weber is know as both a pioneering curator in the field of artists’ books and as an interdisciplinary artist whose major body of artists’ books center around his performance work, his collage and his innovative printmaking. The archive is composed of master copies of Weber’s editioned books, numerous unique books, and prints, drawings, original artwork, mockups, test pages, page spreads, culls and artist's proofs. The materials span from Weber’s “odd book” beginnings in the early 1980's (arrived at through experiments in poetry, performance art, collage and photography, rather than formal training in printmaking or publishing) through his formal introduction to the concept of the artist’s book in the 1990's and to date as new books are added each year. The archive also includes books and ephemers from his long-time collaboration with Organik (a collaborative artist’s book group) and includes a number of contemporary artists’ books featuring digital photography. Some of their remaining works have been organized into a subcollection containing press material, photographs, and page proofs.
