This page was designed to support the students in Virginia Green's book arts course as they explore the Baylor Book Arts Collection. We will be looking at examples from the BBAC during the course, but if you would like to make an appointment to see other works or have an in-depth opportunity to engage with the collection, you can click here to make an appointment. Let me know if you have any questions and I'm looking forward to sharing this amazing collection with you!

Artist's Books in the BBAC -- this link allows you to browse all of the artist's books in the Baylor Libraries collection.
The Baylor Book Arts Collection began in 2007, with the acquisition of a collection of works by artist Maddy Rosenberg. Since that time, the collection has grown to nearly 1400 hundred items representing many artists and presses. The collection includes works in nearly every genre of artist's book from single page construction to elaborate and complex structures. Fine press examples include partnerships between artists, poets, and presses, resulting in exquisite examples of the physical book.
