In 2014, Cardiff University Library received a considerable donation of Artists’ Books from Ron King of the Circle Press, one of the most influential practitioners of the Book Arts.
Cardiff Met Library was also pleased to receive a significant number of books from Ron to enhance our growing Artists’ Books Collection.
In December 2015, Special Collections and Archives (SCOLAR), in association with the Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research and Cardiff School of Art and Design, will be hosting a major international conference to celebrate this donation. Plenary speakers will include leading book artists Sarah Bodman, John Christie, Simon Cutts, Ron King and Sam Winston.
4-6 December, Cardiff University
The full programme can be seen on the conference website here, and bookings are now being taken.
