The Library’s Special Collections consist of artists’ books, portfolios, photographs, titles in the Whitney Fellows Artist and Writers Series (1982–2001), posters, and valuable ephemera that relate to the Museum’s permanent collection. There is a focus on literature illustrated by American artists and fine editions of collaborative works between artists and writers. Books in the Special Collections by or about a particular artist can be found by searching the artists’ name in WhitneyCat.
