Artist's Book Collection
In 2002, the Kunsthochschule Kassel and the University Library gave the go-ahead for an artist's book collection. The collection involves outstanding artist's books by students of the Kunsthochschule Kassel, which are being preserved via archiving in the artist's book collection of the University and hence made available to the public. External acquisitions complete the collection.
