Sheffield International Artist’s Book Prize & Exhibition:
7th – 31st October 2015, Bank Street Arts

The Sheffield International Artist’s Book Prize is now in its fifth edition and since the first exhibition and Prize in 2008 it has grown to be one of the largest artist’s book prize in the world and a significant UK event in the artist’s book calendar. Opening up the Book has been built upon the success of the Prize and this year the exhibition includes exhibitors from more countries than ever before. For the first stage of the submission process, we received entries from forty five countries, with most being represented in the exhibition. For the first time this year we have selected from initial entries and the exhibition itself presents just over 200 books from an entry of nearly 400.

書就是… A Book is…


一片紙不但表現時間,也表現空間。而一片片的紙張組合起來的書就是一個高深的容器,盛滿文字,既能從中不斷汲取智慧,又能裝入無限的智慧。

A piece of paper reflects not only time but also space. Books are formed by binding papers together to become containers of words that serve as a reservoir as well as a spring of wisdom.
