Special Collections

The Library's Special Collections consist of artists' books, editions, rare artist’s publications and periodicals, posters, and unique ephemera that relate to and expand on the Museum's permanent collection through illustrating the trajectory of the contemporary artist’s book and editions and their continued relevance to contemporary artistic practice.
