Abstract (English)

Tousley defines artist's books and traces their history, while Ehrenberg (Mexican artist and founder of the influential Beau Geste Press) describes his experiences in England and Mexico during the nascent book-art movement; the political ramifications of community and artistic access to mimeograph machines and presses are discussed. Includes five original pageworks.
