Designed for distribution to a wide audience and printed in large editions, these volumes were often bold, colourful and accessible.

The Logan Collection, the best of which is presented here, surveys late nineteenth and twentieth-century developments in the genre of artists books. Notable for its masterpieces and the superb quality of its more than four hundred artists books, it provides the most comprehensive historical overview of the genre available today. Some of the most prestigious publishers of the 20th century - among them Ambroise Vollard, Albert Skira, Gerald Cramer and Iliazd - have engaged the imagination of the finest artists - among them.

Picasso, Malevich, Kandinsky, Kokoschka and Matisse - to collaborate on the creation of the vibrant publications celebrated in this volume.
