Co-curated by Piero Varroni and John David O’Brien

Alyce de Roulet Williamson Gallery at ArtCenter College of Design, Pasadena, CA

The works on display in TOMES were drawn primarily from the collections of libraries in Southern California, institutions which have been collecting and preserving artist books for decades. This exhibition is dedicated to the memory of Joan Hugo and Judith Hoffberg, who both worked tirelessly to promote artist books and whose efforts helped libraries in the Greater Los Angeles area amass their collections.
