Boekie Woekie (Amsterdam) | "Since it first was launched in the year 2000, this web site has remained basically the same. We just added to or took off it, or renewed where and when necessary. We never touched the structure of it. All this time the drawing above with the three words beneath it has been the cover image. By getting used to it, this drawing became so to say the Boekie Woekie logo. Since years it is also to be found on our stationary. Way back in the nineties it appeared as far as I remember for the first time on the cover of a sales catalogue as we printed them in those years. Later the web site really was meant to take over the catalogues' function (...)," sitert fra (og les mer på) websiden

Book Arts at the Centre for Fine Print Research, UK | "Artists' books have emerged as an energetic contemporary artform over the last forty years. Developing from their last materialisation in the 1960s as a way of bypassing the constraints of the gallery; as a vehicle for the dissemination of ideas and a radical format of bringing art to a wider public through artists self-publishing their work. This notion of making art in an affordable non-wall based format led to the growth of what we now recognise as the artist's book, from traditional printed matter to e-books.

As part of our research we explore many aspects of artists' publishing: from the conception and history of the artist's book to creative processes and output, current developments and critical assessments of the subject. Through our research projects and collaborations, we hope to widen critical discourse within the book arts field," sitert fra about us, websiden

Perro Verlag (Canada) | "Established in 2005, Perro Verlag is an idea that grew out of collaborative drawing sessions, comics exhibitions and barbecues at Lucky's Comics in Vancouver. Perro Verlag's roots go back to the energy of 1970s artist's mimeo magazines in which the page became an alternative exhibition space for artists to work in. As Edit deAk, a founding editor of Art-Rite, said about that magazine's run: it was "a restless but friendly, constantly evolving entity." This is an editorial vision that Perro Verlag strives to emulate, working as we do without the constraining net of government funding requiring stability of intent and focus, and sound budgets expressed in spreadsheets," sitert fra websiden

Recognized for years as an essential voice in the increasingly diversified art world conversations and debates, Printed Matter is dedicated to the examination and interrogation of the changing role of artists' publications in the landscape of contemporary art," sitert fra websiden
