ABC [Artists’ Books Cooperative] is an international group of artists, publishers, and educators seeking to create, engage, and experiment with the form of the book, and to foster alternative forms of distribution through collaboration. As well as working on our own practices, we work together to produce collective projects. Centered on book fairs and our online forum, we aim to develop a growing international network of artists.

We welcome enquiries and expressions of interest in membership. Send us an email or come and talk to us.

ABC is an informal association of equitable members who each contribute annually (currently 100 Euros) to share the cost of taking booths at book fairs and producing group projects. The cooperative grows by voting. If you would like to become a part of the ABC network, please apply with the following information here:

  • A short introduction to your practice and central interests, with reasons for wishing to join ABC.
