They way in which artists’ books are perceived depends, for the most part, on editorial criteria that accept the book as a bibliographical artifact which depends on the conditions of its typographical printing. However, if the book takes on its symbolic meaning, it may l ead to the reconsideration of the boundaries of the art-f orm itself, redefining the relationship between artists and spectators in such a way that a self-portrait of all of those involved can be configured.
