Bookmarks: Infiltrating the Library System Project
“The Bookmarks projects series aim is to encourage appreciation of work in the format of the artist’s book. Participating artists each hand-produce an edition of 100 signed and numbered bookmarks to give away through distribution boxes at venues around the world.
Since May 2004, the Bookmarks series of free artwork distribution has visited 50 venues in Italy, the Netherlands, the UK, Germany, Poland, Canada, Brazil, South Korea, Cyprus, Croatia, New Zealand, Japan, Australia and the USA.
Over 250 artists have contributed more than 25,000 bookmarks to the five projects to date. Contributions are collated into sets; one full set being sent to each of the contributing artists and the rest divided and sent in distribution boxes to participating galleries, bookstores and libraries around the world, for visitors to take.”
