Love thy book.

Background Information

Influenced by Joseph Caputo, graphic arts shop teacher at Russell Sage Junior High in Forest Hills, Queens, NYC in 1959, I bought my first printing press in 1960. Studied hand bookbinding with Daniel Gibson Knowlton at Brown University 1968-69 while getting an MA in Economics. Continued studies in Economics with the Graduate Faculty of The New School through 1971.




Richard Minsky founded the Center for Book Arts in 1974 and has worked for more than 35 years to draw attention to book art and encourage artists in the field. His work has been shown around the world and remains in public collections, including the National Gallery of Art and The Victoria and Albert Museum. He has received many fellowships, grants and awards of recognition, including several from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Additional Information

George Braziller is the publisher of my book, The Art of American Book Covers 1875-1930 (April, 2010) In 2010 Yale University mounted an exhibition titled Material Meets Metaphor: A Half-Century of Book Art by Richard Minsky. When George Braziller saw this exhibition he wanted to produce a book about this innovative approach to books as works of art. In 2011 he issued The Book Art of Richard Minsky, in which he gave me total artistic freedom to produce a work that is itself an example of what the book is about. Betty Bright, historian, curator and author of No Longer Innocent: Book Art in America 1960-1980, contributed a foreword to the text.
