  • LT ARTicle #1 2012 | Ex Libris Artist by Saskia Fernando

    There is a fair bit of history behind the artist’s love affair with literature and books. In the 19th century artists illustrated for authors as a side job and then in the 20th century, artists’ work was published, moving the focus from the text to the visual compositions within the pages of these books. Such limited edition books were better known as the livre d’artiste. Quite simply published art now refers to printed work by artists, either on a wider or limited edition scale.
