Special Collections at the University of Delaware Library announces a new
on-line exhibition entitled: Personal Visions:  Artists' Books at the
Millennium.  The exhibit can be viewed from the Special Collections
webpage at: www.lib.udel.edu/ud/spec

The books in this exhibition come from the University of Delaware's
Special Collections which has major holdings in the field of history of
books and printing.   Special Collections has been actively
acquiring contemporary fine press and artists' books for more than twenty
years including many works published by Granary Press, Janus Press, Nexus
Press, Gehenna Press, and Women's Studio Workshop.  Personal Visions
includes examples from these presses as well as works by regional artists
such as Martha Carothers, David Moyers, and Norman Sasowsky.  Other book
artists featured in the exhibition are Julie Chen, known for her
intricately-designed pop-up books; renowned papermaker, Claire Van Vliet;
and miniature book artist, Maryline Poole Adams.

The exhibition Personal Visions: Artists Books at the Millennium
demonstrates that both traditional and avant-garde book arts remain
dynamic.  Both give voice to artistic creativity and both challenge the
reader to become involved in the reading experience.  By focusing on works
published since 1995, the exhibition allows for clear comparisons among
current works.  Personal Visions offers its audience a surprising, often
challenging look at the creative interplay of the artist and the book.
