26 Bankers Boxes and 2 Rolls containing the complete first ten-year archive of the nonprofit art distributor, Booklyn.

Booklyn’s Decade Archive amply illustrates how the transition from analog to digital technology affected artists’ practices (particularly the practices of contemporary bookmakers). More broadly, theĀ archive documents the organization’s central role in shifting the collecting and acquisitions practices of Special Collections libraries from a focus on antiquarian and fine press material to a focus on contemporary, content- and culture-driven books made by artists.
