I think you have to distinguish between a good artist's book and just an
artist's book. Quality is a different matter than simple definition. The
definition of an artist's book is: a book made by an artist. Now you can
distinguish between different kinds of artist's books, like: Finely printed,
xeroxed, with writing, without writing, etc.
All that "harmonious union of text and image etc." stuff is evaluation.
