"'Freedom of the Presses' is a textbook and a toolbox for using artists’ books and creative publications to further community engagement and social justice projects. The book aims to expand and enhance scholarship about creative book-making relevant to the diverse global community of librarians, publishers and readers. 'Freedom of the Presses' features commentary and full-color images from contemporary artists and scholars.
"'Freedom of the Presses' provides perspectives on how to deconstruct colonial and contemporary restraints on the concept, content, design, production, and distribution of artists’ and activists’ publications along with models of how to reimagine artists’ bookmaking as a socially engaged practice. With its provocative mix of humorous, intimate and scholarly writing, the book offers an engaging read that will no doubt have a positive impact on both creative publishing and librarianship."
