1 Review
Cultural writing. Illustrated with 104 black and white and 25 full-color illustrations, this book documents the history and evolution of Book Art in America. "NO LONGER INNOCENT is a full-spectrum history of the artists' book. Bright surveys the rise of the book as art in the sixties and seventies, conveying an exceptionally broad range of its incarnations, from fine press through Xerography, while also discussing the key exhibits, conferences, and shops where viewers became browsers in an international community of readers of art"-Buzz Spector. "NO LONGER INNOCENT is scholarly, readable, and is an important contribution that clearly identifies who did what when. It will be the standard reference work in this field, and is a must-have book for any serious student, collector, curator, librarian, and artist"-Richard Minsky.

User Review  - Divina - Goodreads

Not only a great intro to artist's books, but also to 20th-century fine press publishing. I wish the photos were of higher quality. Read full review
