Richard Minsky, founder of the Center for Book Arts in New York City, is known for his conceptual approach to hand bookbinding and his commitment to changing the perception of the book arts from craft to fine art. He combines a background in economics with an innovative use of traditional methods and new materials to create sculptural, often political, bookworks. Minsky's blending of an eclectic mix of interests, from musical and theatre performance to social issues and virtual worlds, remains a hallmark of his career. This collection showcases his editioned (non-commissioned) bookworks alongside selections from the Richard Minsky Archive, which documents the history of his career and his working process.
