Drop in to Llandaff Library before 6th March to see the current exhibition. The work on display is by CSAD L5 students from their recent Field Project: Magical Objects Masks.
With thanks to James Green and students for installing this thought-provoking show.

Looking forward to showing some of our artists’ books at Cyncoed Campus tomorrow as part of the library’s World Book Day celebrations.
The Library’s Artists’ Books Collection is growing rapidly, with now over 350 books. The term ‘Artist’s Book’ refers to books made or conceived by an artist – artworks in their own right.
Whilst many contemporary books have been bought for the collection, others have been donated or moved from the main shelves of the library into the Special Collections. From these we find that we have books representing each of the decades since the 1960s. To celebrate this – that our collection covers fifty of the 150+ years of Cardiff Metropolitan University – we feature examples from across those fifty years.
