Summary of the Project:
The “8th International Artist’s Books Triennial Vilnius 2018” is a unique non-commercial cultural project, organised to promote artist’s books, creators of artist’s books from all over the world, and to connect galleries, publishers, editors and printers of fine art & limited editions, the greater general public, collectors and individual artists.
It is an educational art project involving world-renowned artists to familiarise art teachers, students and general public with the interdisciplinary arts with the stunning variety of artistic disciplines in an artist’s book – and especially to stimulate creativity and love for books.
With the world-wide support of fine artists we continue our Project of the Artist’s Books Triennial Vilnius on the very best artistic level:
