Artists’ books combine text, image, material and structure to tell a story. In honor of National Poetry Month, let’s take a closer look at one of the library’s artists’ books, “Admonition”, by Sara R. Parr.
I've been a Special Collections Librarian at TSCPL since 2004. Artists' books, books about books, books about art, pop-up books, and rare and unusual books are my focus. When I'm not up to my elbows in books, I'm in the Topeka Room answering local history and genealogy questions.

The votes are in and the prizes have been awarded! Take a look at this year’s Edible Book Festival winners.
Join the fun at the 6th Annual Edible Book Festival. Create an edible masterpiece based on the content or shape of a book, see other edible works of art and vote for your favorites.
Artists’ books encourage us to look outside the binding to see what a book can be. Bottle cap pages, metal covers, and sanded and shaped text blocks are just a few of the possibilities.
Breathe new life into damaged or out-of-date books by altering them into a work of art.
