Manuel Neri: Artists' Books / The Collaborative Process

Overview

Manuel Neri's work with the artists' book is almost certainly his least known. The number of these projects has been few, four so far, all produced in very limited numbers. Until now, these books have been scarcely documented, at least in comparison to Neri's voluminous production as a sculptor.

    collaboration in making limited edition at books

    Six books with Neri artwork in the Reva and David Logan Gallery of Illustrated Books at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are covered in detail. The text of three of the books is poems by Mary Julia Klimenko. And three books of Neri's planned project of seven books with poems by Pablo Neruda are similarly presented. Each of the six books is shown page by page from title page and content to the colophon at the end. As an introduction, the six books are placed in the tradition beginning in the late 1900s of the 'livres d'artists' an 'art form [which] has shown an unanticipated tenacity by remaining an unobtrusive but persistent genre ever since.' In addition to Neri's art work in the books, sculptures and drawings of his relating to this are pictured, many of these in full-page color photos. Introductory essays by Bruce Nixon (editor-in-chief of Artweek) to the three Neri-Klimenko limited edition art books focus on the collaboration between writer and artist which is central to such projects with more limited commentary as well on the roles of printer, calligrapher, and binder also part of a successful collaboration. The numerous clear color photographs capturing details of the visual elements are the next best thing to seeing the art books themselves. While Nixon's introductions and commentary delve into both aesthetic and technical matters involved in producing such distinctive books.
