At a time when the notion of the book is challenged by the advent of the screen and computer, Blood on Paper aims to show the extraordinary ways in which the book has been treated by leading artists of the past century. Focusing on new and contemporary work and on books where the artist has been the driving force in conception and design, this innovative book comprises a series of unbound booklets presented in a box.
Almost all notable artists of the 20th and 21st centuries have produced books, or works that refer to books: those represented will include artists as diverse as Matisse, Picasso, David Hockney, Damien Hirst, Richard Long, Robert Motherwell and many others whose names are synonymous with art today.
