Seeing, touching, reading… Artists' books, a genre on the margins

Artists' books, which play with materials, dimensions, and text, are often difficult to define. They are objects that can be seen, read, and touched; they are three-dimensional works of art, literature, and design. Their rightful place is both in art collections and galleries and on the shelves of a number of libraries that have set up special collections. The BBF interviews the artist Luc Brévart, director of the Ateliers de la Halle and co-founder of the International Biennial of Artist's Books in Arras in 1996.
