Druckworks, 1972 - 2012


Johanna Drucker printed her first letterpress book in 1972, and has been a prolific printer, writer, typographic poet, and scholar-critic ever since. While widely known for her contributions to contemporary art theory and design history, Drucker is also a practicing artist with more than four-dozen editioned artist's books to her credit. Her writings have helped shape the field of artists' books, visual poetics, and digital aesthetics in dialogue with the arts and critical, social, and cultural issues. Druckworks, 1972-2012, is a comprehensive retrospective catalogue featuring Drucker's books, graphic art, and visual projects alongside her own writing and that of many scholars of the arts, including Jerome McGann, Marjorie Perloff, Susan Bee, Emily McVarish, Brad Freeman, Kyle Schlesinger, Craig Dworkin, and others. The catalogue documents the work and the exhibition, and offers key insights into the evolution of the field of artists' books as an interdisciplinary, and often collaborative, artistic and literary activity.
