THE ART OF THE BOOK exhibits the work of book artist Johanna Drucker and designer Bruce Mau. Both view the book as an art form.

As a book artist, Drucker uses varying letters, texts, fonts, images and experimental typography to tell a story and create a work of art which is a book.

The driving force of Mau's design is always content. Engaging the content drives the forward momentum and is key to a design that constantly renews itself.

Selection of the works of artist, Johanna Drucker, and designer, Bruce Mau are now on exhibit in the Atrium of the Science Library, University at Albany, State University of New York. The exhibit was mounted by Dorothy Christiansen, Head of The M.E. Grenander Department of Special Collections and Archives, University at Albany Libraries, with the assistance of Sarah Cunningham, Executive Director of The Albany Center Galleries and the faculty and staff of the Grenander Department. Ms. Christiansen has selected and arranged titles supplied by Johanna Drucker and Bruce Mau.
