Danske kunstnerbøger/Danish Artists’ Books offers the first-ever comprehensive presentation of Danish artists’ books – the pioneers, the main works, the periods, the links to international movements, contemporary artists’ books – via a wide range of contributions from Danish scholars, art critics, and artists as well as from some of the leading international scholars within the field.

This dual-language edition (Danish/English) presents the artists who have had the greatest impact on the artist's book tradition in Denmark, including Asger Jorn, Albert Mertz, Per Kirkeby, Lene Adler Petersen, Jesper Fabricius, Christian Vind, and Tal R.

Danske kunstnerbøger/Danish Artists’ Books contains many contributions from Danish scholars, art critics, artists, and collectors – and from two of the leading international scholars within the field, Anne Mœglin-Delcroix and Johanna Drucker. Lavishly illustrated, the book features more than 200 photos (colour and b/w).
