Summary History

Although materials relating to bibliography and bibliphily were collected in Special Collections and University Archives in the past, it was in 1995, following the success of the first New Jersey Book Arts Symposium (NJBAS) that SC/UA first began to collect the book arts as such. The design for the Collection corresponded to that of the NJBAS: It preserves for study and teaching examples of book art relating to the history and material culture of New Jersey, emphasizing contemporary artifacts and the field of artists' books. The related fields of papermaking, or paper-marbling, bookbinding, graphic design, illustration, printmaking, calligraphy are implicit and well represented within the Collection. Likewise, the Archive tends to focus on the work of individuals rather than on history, craft, theme, region, theory, chronology, etc., although it makes an exception (institutional) by documenting book arts activities within the Libraries. The largest and most important part of this last category is the annual New Jersey Book Arts Symposium, which since 1995 has been held at the Dana Library. It also preserves and documents related activities, such as the exhibitions of book artists and book art regularly held at the Dana Library and SC/UA.

The Archive grew organically as a miscellany of administrative papers, letters, articles, slides, etc. and only coalesced as an archive in 2002-2003, when Maria Somers began the task of imposing order upon it. While the Ur-Archive began reflexively in response to the New Jersey Book Arts Collection, in its present form it goes beyond the Collection by documenting the careers of New Jersey artists whose works are (as yet) absent from the Collection, and book art activities within New Jersey. A subordinate but valuable part of the archive consists of materials relating to the book arts beyond the state. This exiguous and loosely controlled body of materials nevertheless allows scholars to examine the practice of the book arts in New Jersey in relationship to the practice of book arts elsewhere. This part of the Archive corresponds to the books, prints and related materials contributed to the Collection.


Current Collecting Focus

New Jersey Book Arts Symposium:

Documenting the annual symposium and the related activities of the New Jersey Book Arts Symposium committee is an important mission of the Archive. A substantial amount of documentation for the NJBAS is already available on the Web.

New Jersey book artists whose works are a substantive part of the collection:

While the New Jersey Book Arts Collection documents book arts activities "horizontally" within the State, by being inclusive, it also makes an effort to represent book arts activities "vertically," by emphasizing the works of NJ artists of particular importance. Therefore, the Archive has a special emphasis on New Jersey book artists whose works are represented more comprehensively within the Collection, i.e. Suellen Glashausser, Lois Morrison, and John Ross.

Contemporary New Jersey Book Artists represented by a single piece in the collection, and not yet represented:

The Archive solicits material relative to this very large group of artists, and seeks to define this category of New Jersey book history and culture. However, its size relative to our limited means contraindicates collecting in this category very aggressively.

Book Arts Activities Within the Libraries

The Archive solicits book arts activities within the libraries, including activities related to book arts generated by the Mabel Douglass College Library, Special Collections and University Archives, the Jane Voorhees Zimmerli Museum, the Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper, and the Art Library.

Book Arts Materials Outside New Jersey

Ephemeral materials relative to the book arts that come to us are selectively included within the collection. However, they are not described in detail in the finding aid, and no special efforts are made to acquire them.

Relevant Collections at Rutgers University Libraries

The website for the New Jersey Book Arts Symposium provides ample documentation of the various symposia beginning in 1995 and extending to the present, including paper presentations, an online exhibition (1996), photographs and descriptions of several symposia, at http://www.libraries.rutgers.edu/rulib/spcol/bookarts/intro.htm.

Wood engravers are represented with the John DePol Collection of American Wood Engraving, which has a separate finding- aid. It documents the prints, correspondence and ephemera relating to John DePol, with links to finding aids relating to other areas of American wood engraving collected by Special Collections, including a Lynd Ward collection of prints and woodblocks and an archive of George Whittle Howes materials, which houses tools, prints, woodblocks and photographs among other artifacts.

The Suellen Glashausser Collection documents the artistic career of Suellen Glashausser, an important and highly influential New Jersey book artist, with an emphasis upon the years 1981-2000. A finding aid is being prepared and, at present, the collection is unavailable to researchers.


Scope and Content:

The New Jersey book Arts Collection begins in 1995 with the first New Jersey Book Arts Symposium and is on going. Currently it is housed in four manuscript boxes. No part of the collection is restricted.

The collection is divided into three series that pertain to Book Arts as a whole. The first is focused on Book Arts activities at Rutgers. The second series focuses on the artists themselves, and the final section covers the craft of Book Arts in general.

Book Arts Activities at Rutgers University: 1995-

The first series, housed in one manuscript box currently, is focused on the Book Arts activities at Rutgers University. The largest sub series of this pertains to the New Jersey Book Arts Symposium that is hosted yearly at Rutgers University, and is primarily the ephemera generated by each. This series begins in 1995, at the inception of the NJ Book Arts Symposium, and is still open. Folders will be added for each year the symposium is held. Once added, the folders are closed. Formats also include correspondence in the form of letters and notes, postcards announcing exhibitions and artwork, as well as the ephemera of the NJBAS.

Artists: 1995-

The second series, currently housed in two manuscript boxes, focuses on the artists themselves, and includes artists from New Jersey who are represented in the Book Arts Collection at Rutgers, as well as NJ artists not yet in the collection, and artists from outside NJ who are represented in the collection. This is an open series, with correspondence from the artists, as well as ephemera like exhibition information and book information.

Book Arts Activities outside Rutgers: 1995-

The final series revolves around Book Arts activities in general, that have no relationship to Rutgers's collection or New Jersey artists, but is informative on the nature of Book Arts at large. This is housed in one manuscript box. The items in this series are not solicited, but are obtained via post and from artists themselves.


Arrangement Note:

The records are arranged alphabetically when dates are known, put into order by context, or left at the end if no obvious date can be ascertained. In addition, items like posters, invitations and programs are at the beginning of folders about the NJBAS, and the curriculum vitae are noted at the beginning of each folder for artists included in the collection.


Highlights:

Certain artists have made considerable contributions to the Book Arts Collection at Rutgers University Libraries and should be pointed out.

Lois Morrison and John Ross are two more New Jersey artists whose contributions, both to the collection and the ongoing success of the New Jersey Book Arts Symposium, go beyond the casual involvement. In addition to working on the Symposium Ross and another New Jersey artist, Clare Romano, mounted a very successful exhibition of their own at Alexander Library in 2001.
