Using Electronic Journals . . .
We have two new books in the artists’ books collection by Philip Zimmermann: ‘High Tension’ and ‘Civil Defense’. I was able to research these works and the artist by using the library catalogue SUMMON to access electronic journals.
The Blue Notebook: journal for artists’ books launched in October 2006 as a peer-reviewed journal, published twice a year. It is published in two formats: an online colour version and print in black and white. Cardiff Met subscribes to both. To see the print version visit the journals area of the library on the 2nd floor of zone three, otherwise access the full colour version online. In Volume 8 No.2 published in April 2014 you can find this excellent article: Tension, Style, and the Modern Psyche. A Stylistic Analysis of Philip Zimmermann’s ‘High Tension’ by Alison Gibbons.
