The Journal of Artists’ Books provides a platform for both theoretical and creative expression. As a forum for the study of artists’ books, JAB publishes critical and theoretical articles, reviews of artists' books and exhibitions, and commentary on conferences and and other book art-related activities. JAB also regularly showcases creative work in the form of artists' statements and artist-designed pages and covers.
As a book art project itself, each issue of JAB embodies an interest in all aspects of the production of the journal, incorporating different design elements for each issue and, whenever possible, JAB staff do all the printing of the journal.
JAB often includes various artist-created inserts and booklets, or has its covers letterpress-printed by the designing artist. JAB is published twice a year, in the spring and fall.
JAB46 is a special issue—it will be a history/homage catalog for two exhibitions at Columbia College Chicago, one for Anchor Graphics and the other for the Center for Book and Paper Arts, both opening in fall of 2019. Thanks to Duncan MacKenzie, Chair of the Department of Art & Art History, for suggesting this history/homage catalog, and for his continued support of JAB’s mission.
