Book Arts: Other Media

Subject-specific lists of book arts materials available in Special Collections at the Robert B. Haas Family Arts Library

Photography, Comics & Graphic Novels

There are, of course, many other ways that 9/11 has been memorialized by artists and in book form.  Some people consider comics and graphic novels to be part of the book arts, some do not.  The role of photography in book arts is also part of a larger critical dialogue.  No matter your personal definition of book arts, all of these media have been well-employed to remember and discuss the events of 9/11.  Below are just a few examples of bookworks in these other media.
