Alongside this year’s 4th Sheffield International Artist’s Book Prize, taking place at Bank Street Arts in Sheffield throughout October and November, we are showcasing artists’ books in a range of public spaces around the city.
There will be two installations in The Central Library throughout the month of October. Prize winning book artist, Katherine Johnson, from Leeds will create a site specific book and paper installation in the large display case between the Library and Graves Gallery whilst on the ground floor of the Library we will be displaying an exhibition of photographs of artists’ books from our unique collection.
Books from the Collection will also be on show in branch libraries around the city. Look out for these unique displays in Chapeltown, Ecclesfield and Walkley libraries, throughout October and November, where artists’ books will be displayed and can be handled, manipulated and read. There will also be a static display of more sculptural books in Window 7 on Cambridge Street as part of Sheffield Showcase from October 1st to November 10th.
Books will also be on display in selected Sheffeild hotel foyers throughout Octiober and November including: Holiday Inn Royal Victoria, Hilton Sheffield, Kenwood Hall, DoubleTree by Hilton and Jurys Inn, Sheffield
