Preface: The Artists' Books of Suellen Glashausser

Michael Joseph


"The Artists' Books of Suellen Glashausser," which forms this issue of The Journal of the Rutgers University Libraries, will explore one of the most extraordinary of the New Jersey Book Arts Collections, the one-of-a-kind artists' books created by Suellen Glashausser, during the last decades of the twentieth century, between 1980 and 2000. It attempts to shed light upon these highly idiosyncratic, nontraditional bookworks with reference to historical, biographical and sociocultural contexts, and to bring readers, some of whom may be unfamiliar with artists' books, into close proximity with the extraordinary productions of one of the field's most original virtuoso artists.
