Publications VSW Press
VSW Press publishes books by artists, often in connection with work produced as part of our artist residency programs. Each title is made in collaboration with the artist in limited and open editions. Online Bookstore
VSW Press, founded by Joan Lyons in 1971, has been foundational for the field of artists’ books through consistently publishing books by artists and providing resources for criticism and collections.
In 1984 Joan Lyons edited the first anthology of critical essays and sources for the field of artists’ book. Lyons also recently edited a volume on VSW’s publishing activity Artists’ Books: Visual Studies Workshop Press 1971-2008, an annotated bibliography with statements by many of the author-artists VSW has worked with.
We have an online bookstore, host an alternative book fair each year in Rochester, frequently participate in other book fairs nationally, and we have a small bookstore on-site at VSW where our titles and other books are launched, exhibited, and sold on consignment for artists.
