Book Works, New Website and Digital Archive

Book Works has developed a new website and digital archive that now includes material ranging from finished works to ephemera, correspondence, photographs and manuscripts providing an insight into the working processes of both the publishing and studio sections of the organisation.

What’s new?

The Digital Archive
An ongoing project, the digital archive consists of a database that includes a search facility allowing visitors to filter and select material with a bespoke classification system. The archive currently includes detailed content relating to two initial case studies from Book Works back catalogue: After the Freud Museum by Susan Hiller and Erasmus is Late by Liam Gillick, as well as ephemera and material from other projects.

The Timeline
Constructed around a chronological timeline, Book Works publications are now presented alongside documentation of all our commissions, including printed material and images of live events. The timeline runs from our latest project Again, A Time Machine, back to the first Book Works exhibitions from 1984.

Forthcoming titles, exhibitions and events will be announced using both the news section of the website, and a redesigned newsletter. You can subscribe to our mailing list here. Our most recent newsletter announced the opening of the Stewart Home exhibition at White Columns, part of our Again, A Time Machine touring project.

Shop and Supporters’ Scheme
Any published title in print can be purchased from our secure online shop and shipped worldwide. The website also hosts our new supporters scheme, The List, with an easy-to-use, online payment facility.

The extensive range of work and services, from bookbinding, box-making, portfolios, to multiples and prints, can now be viewed online, along with relevant contact details.

The archive and website has been developed by Karen Di Franco and James Brook in collaboration with Camberwell College of Arts, University of Arts London, with support from the Knowledge Transfer Programme scheme and Arts Council England. Designed by Yes studio, London.
