A Journey through Artists’ Books from the National Art Library, V&A

Explore the National Art Library’s rich collection of artists’ books in this online talk from Assistant Curator Catriona Gourlay. Catriona will focus on a selection of the National Art Library’s recent acquisitions of artists’ books acquired over the past 5 years. She will explain  how and why they came into the collection.

Catriona studied Fine Art in Edinburgh and worked as a Research Assistant at the National Galleries of Scotland before becoming Assistant Curator in the National Art Library at the V&A in 2015. Her recent V&A display, Landscape and Language in Artists’ Books, explored how artists since the 1960s have used thought-provoking combinations of word and image to respond to landscape or evoke imaginary places.
