    The book as... is an adventure that introduces us to the depths of this great forest consisting of artists books and books object in the National Library of Spain. venture into an unknown landscape means, often, hear sounds and noises never previously heard.

    book artist is an art object and as such it is highly interdisciplinary, opens to a myriad of disciplines and approaches multiple. it is also a book that awakens all the senses and at the same time offers us naked creative freedom of those who conceived it. tends to be, generally speaking, a single copy (original book, paper mounting, book recycling...) and serial (ranging between 1 and 1000 approx.) and the figure of the editor usually does not intervene in this kind of books.

    exposure poses an intervention interactive from objects and artist's books of the BNE, whose perception will be amended and supplemented through sounds, music, video images and smells, reaching the transmission of sensory experiences through books in an attempt to reflect on the future of the book in support of the knowledge.

    the Commissioner is Magda Polo Pujadas, lecturer in the art Department of the Faculty of geography i history of the Universitat de Barcelona.

    exhibition organized by national library of Spain and Spanish Cultural action.
