Support Book Works

In 2009, to celebrate our 25th anniversary, we launched a new supporter’s scheme The List.

Book Works is a publicly funded organisation dedicated to commissioning contemporary artist’s books, projects and exhibitions. Founded in 1984, Book Works has worked with a diverse range of artists – often as emerging artists, publishing for the first time, many of whom have gone on to great success: Tacita Dean, Jeremy Deller, Mark Dion, Douglas Gordon, Liam Gillick, Susan Hiller, Joseph Kosuth, Mike Nelson, Katrina Palmer, Cornelia Parker, Adrian Piper, Elizabeth Price, Laure Prouvost, Clunie Reid and Mark Titchner. We also have a history of commissioned projects with young guest editors and curators including: Mark Beasley, Lisa Le Feuvre, Nav Haq, Matthew Higgs, Stewart Home, Stefan Kalmár, Lisa Panting, Francesco Pedraglio, Nina Power and Sara Wajid.

Support Book Works 2

The List is a vital part of Book Works' success. Our friends and supporters are often drawn from artists, designers and curators that we’ve worked with, as well as friends, business colleagues, art collectors and our wider readership and audience. It forms a community and network that gives value and support, both financially and in terms of critique, review, discussion, and further opportunities. We have an ongoing need to raise substantial contributions towards our annual programme from like-minded individuals and organisations prepared to support Book Works’ commitment to developing new art projects and working with artists at all stages of their careers.

Benefits for supporters include: invitations to launches and events, mailing of our annual catalogue and a discount on Book Works publications.
