2023 Artists' Book 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 80 plus artist books the Northern Beaches Library Service holds in their collection. This collection is unique to our community and public library service.

All selected works in the 2023 award will be displayed at the Manly Art Gallery & Museum from 3 March to 16 April 2023.

Works selected for acquisition will be purchased as part of the Northern Beaches Libraries’ collection.
