The Fine Arts Library participated in UWE Bristol’s Bookmarks project during 2017-18. This long-running endeavour aimed to raise awareness of book arts by distributing small, limited edition artworks in the form of bookmarks through participating venues. As a host venue the library provided an open, public place where batches of bookmarks could be periodically released for people to take away.
In recognition of our participation, a complete set of bookmarks was presented to the Library for inclusion in the Artist Books Collection. This set is now on display in the Fine Arts Library.
Further background details on the project, participating artists, and previous years’ offerings may be found on the Bookmarks Project Archive 2003-2018.
