Collections Independent Press and Artist Book Collection
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.
