VSW’s Independent Press Collection holds over 6,000 artists’ books and many fine examples of independently published poetry from the 1960s through today.

  • The collection was established from VSW’s Press publishing activity and Book Bus distribution program, both established in the 1970s.

  • Nearly all of VSW Press’s approximately 500 titles are represented in the collection. As are other critically important publishers and artist space production houses such as Nexus Press; the Jargon Society; Weproductions; Dog Ear Press; BOA Editions; Women’s Studio Workshop; and Burning Deck, to name a few.
