Founded by Brad Freeman in 1994, JAB - The Journal of Artists’ Books (ISSN 1085-1461) is dedicated to elevating the level of discourse in artists’ books by providing a critical forum for theoretical and creative issues in artists’ books.
Artists’ books exist at the intersections of printmaking, photography, poetry, experimental narrative, visual arts, graphic design, & book art.
As a forum for the study of these works, JAB publishes critical and theoretical articles, reviews of books & exhibitions, documentation of current activity through interviews with artists & publishers, as well as commentary on conferences and other book art-related activities.
JAB regularly showcases creative work in the form of artists’ statements, artist-designed pages, artists’ books, and covers produced specifically for JAB.
JAB ceased publication in 2020 and back issues are available through Brad Freeman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
JAB is indexed in Art Abstracts, CSA's ARTbibliographies Modern, and in Bibliography of the History of Art.
