"This splendid volume expands upon and extends the work initiated by Renee Riese Hubert in 'Surrealism and the Book' (University of California Press, 1987) by focusing acute critical attention on recent and contemporary artists' books. In 'The Cutting Edge of Reading' the Huberts develop a discourse which starts where the livre d'artiste leaves off." -- book jacket Table of contents: Ch. 1 Introduction: The Protean Artist's Book Ch. 2 Transitions: Ania Staritsky, Pierre Alechinsky, Paolo Boni, Shirley Sharoff, Pierre-Andre Arnal Ch. 3 Visual Deviants and Typographical Departures: Telfer Stokes/Helen Douglas, Sixtus/Jacques Malgorn/Pierre Mabille, Walter Hamady Ch. 4 Perturbations in our Reading Habits: Roberto Martinez, Michael Woolworth/Jose Maria Sicilia, Francine Zubeil, Sixtus/Jean Francois Lacalmontie, Susan King, Janet Zweig, Dieter Roth, Kevin Osborn Ch. 5 Altering Books - The Cutting Edge of Reading: Tom Phillips, Helen Brunner, Elisabeth Broel, Harry Reese, Buzz Spector, Robert Groborne, Jean Le Gac, Scott McCarney Ch. 6 Variations on the Accordion: Anne Walker, Bertrand Dorny, Susan King, Julie Chen, Clifton Meador, Philip Zimmermann Ch. 7 The Book, The Museum, and Public Art: Susan King, Jochen Gerz, Margot Lovejoy, Joan Lyons, Christian Boltanski, Annette Messager Ch. 8 Satire: Marcel Broodthaers, Terry Braunstein, Warren Lehrer/Dennis Bernstein, Ruth Laxson Ch. 9 Crystallizations of Memory: Nora Ligorano/Marshall Reese, Philip Zimmermann, Scott McCarney, Ed Epping Ch. 10 Narrative and Verbal Manipulation: Johanna Drucker, Paul Zelevansky, Harry Polkinhorn, Henri Chopin, Claude Closky, Keith Smith, Joelle Dautricourt, Maurizio Nannucci, John Crombie, Barbara Fahrner Ch. 11 The Metamorphosis of Child-Like Games: Virginia Barrett, Erica Van Horn, Clarissa Sligh, Susan King Ch. 12 Fashioners of Books: John Eric Broaddus, Timothy Ely Ch. 13 On the Situation of Artists' Books
