Production Narrative

by B. Freeman

If everything goes as planned, JAB7 was imageset and printed by Brad Freeman at SUNY Purchase, Center for Editions, March, 1997 – about 500 copies. Design by Brad Freeman. Thanks to Pattie Belle Hastings for stripping and plates. The Journal of Artists’ Books (ISSN 1085-1461) is published twice a year, once in Spring and Once in Fall. JAB was founded in 1994 in order to encourage lively and serious debate about artists' books. Our mission is to develop the field of artists' books by means of critical discourse and creative exploration of the intersections of book arts, artists' books, poetry, photography, experimental literature, and other book related creative endeavors. As a forum for the study of artists' books, JAB publishes articles, reviews of artists' books and exhibitions, and commentary on conferences as well as other book arts-related activities. JAB also documents current activity through interviews with artists, showcases creative work in the form of artists' statements and artist-designed pages, inserts, and covers.
