In 2018, the Turin-based gallery owner Liliana Dematteis decided to entrust her invaluable collection of artists' books to the Thomas J. Watson Library of the Metropolitan Museum in New York. The volume On Collecting Artists' Books aims to pay homage to this important collection. These volumes compare some of the most emblematic books, is edited by Melania Gazzotti, and is introduced by texts by Liliana Dematteis, Giorgio Di Domenico, Ken Soehner, and Tony White. In both countries, in fact, different artistic movements saw in this everyday object not only an alternative and effective vehicle of content, but also a stimulating ground for experimentation.
