“Some books are to be tasted, others to be swallowed, and some are to be chewed and digested.”

~Francis Bacon, Essays (1625) 

This exhibition is a historical exploration of the book as art in Miami and the artists who use it to express themselves to show Miami in a different light from the 1980s to today. Along with works on view from artists such as Margarita Cano, Tom Virgin, and Purvis Young, among others, Cover to Cover will also survey the organizations responsible for printing and publishing artists' books today.

Using artists’ books, zines, and archival materials from the Miami-Dade Public Library System’s Permanent Art Collection and Vasari Project archive, this exhibit continues the Library’s history of celebrating book arts and artists through exhibitions, education, and programming.

This exhibition was made possible through generous funding from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and Miami-Dade County Cultural Affairs.

About the Vasari Project:

The Vasari Project is a library collection at Main Library dedicated to documenting, collecting, and preserving Miami-Dade County's art history from 1945 to the present. It is a living archive that grows through contributions from artists, art professionals, exhibition spaces, galleries, institutions, and private donors.

The Vasari Project is a resource for ongoing research, scholarship, publications, artists' projects, exhibitions, and events. The archive collects documentation rather than original works of art composed primarily of printed matter: correspondence, press clippings, photographs, posters, books, exhibition catalogs, artists' files, oral histories, and other ephemeral materials.

About the Division of Special Collections & Archives:

Miami-Dade Public Library System’s Division of Special Collections & Archives is located at the Main Library and holds rare and irreplaceable historical materials for the benefit of the public and scholarly community. They oversee the Helen Muir Florida Collection, 16mm Film Collection, Cuban Collection of Rare Books & Ephemera, Genealogy Collection, Vasari Project archive, and Rare & Antiquarian books from as early as the 17th century. The Division aims to provide the public with the contents of these collections at their request, which include books, original manuscripts, over 18,000 photographs, prints, artifacts, audiovisual resources, and electronic media.
