Black Excellence in the Book Arts

In celebration of Black History Month we created an updated online version of the exhibition Black Excellence in the Book Arts, which was on display in McCabe Library as part of Swarthmore’s Year of Black Excellence in 2019. The exhibition highlights artists’ books in the Swarthmore College Libraries’ collection by Black artists. Established artists such as Clarissa Sligh and Tia Blassingame are represented along with up-and-coming artists like Cuba and Autumn Thomas.
