Dedicated to providing a forum for critical and creative engagement with artists' books.

Our mission is to engage with the field of artists books by means of critical discourse and creative exploration of the intersections of book arts, artists books, poetry, photography, experimental literature, printmaking, graphic design and other book-related creative endeavors.

JAB expands the audience for artists who make books, and each issue of JAB includes essays, reviews, and artists' projects focused on the book as an intermedia form of art.
NOTE: JAB ceased publication after the JAB 47/48 (Spring 2020) issue.
Therefore, please do not send any review copies of artsts' books.
