From Library Journal
The personal immediacy of artists' books capture the imagination and involve the "reader" in developing alternative ways of viewing the world. Carefully compiled by Lauf and Phillpot, an independent art historian and a former librarian at the Museum of Modern Art, respectively, this book's informative essays and striking collection of graphic images make it a fine example of the genre it attempts to define. Ranging from limited editions to posters to comics, the works presented here mirror the multiple styles and varied concerns of today's creative community. New technology has led to innovations in graphic design, computer-generated publications, and the blurring of distinctions between art and advertising, expanding and shifting artistic boundaries. This book provides both an intelligent study of these myriad topics for students of contemporary art and a visual delight for casual readers. Recommended for all libraries collecting books on contemporary art.?Paula Frosch, Metropolitan Museum of Art Lib., New York

The accompanying text was a little obtuse (at least to me), a little judgemental (okay, a lot), and defined the medium of artists' books in a way that I just don't agree with.
Worth having, for the images and for the impetus to clarify just exactly *why* I disagreed with certain pronouncements, but can't hold a candle to other recent books about artists' books.
