Next time someone asks me ‘what is Book Art’ I’ll refer them to this diagram by Clive Phillpot.

  • book: Set of sheets usually fastened together along one edge and trimmed on the other edges.
  • art book: Book of which an artist, or art, is the subject.
  • artist book: Book of which an artist is the author.
  • artist’s book: Book belonging to an artist.
  • book object: Artwork that only alludes to the book form, or, a bok rendered unusable as part of an artwork.
  • book arts: Crafts utilised in the making of books.
