artist's book collection

The aeaf has a small collection of rare artist's books, many by fluxus artists from australia, and the US. The collection was originally donated by inaugural director Noel Sheridan. The collection is not currently available to the public but interested researchers with a specific focus are welcome to contact the aeaf to discuss access. The highly prized collection is in need of a sponsor to allow wider access to this important resource.
