About the award

An artist’s book is a medium of artistic expression that uses the form or function of a 'book' as inspiration.

Every two years the Northern Beaches Library Service holds an Artists’ Book Award attracting entries from around the world. Books are selected from the entries to form an exhibition. From the exhibited books, judges then select books to be acquired and added to the 100 plus artist books the Northern Beaches Library Service holds in their collection. This collection is unique to our community and public library service.
