Does anyone have any info about copyright when re-using books, leaflletts, maps and other printed matter?
What can we use in the UK??? Is it ok to then take photographts of the resulting artwork then publish in?

Printed Matter is pleased to announce Available to Everyone: Robert Jacks and Printed Matter, curated by Peter Anderson.

The exhibition presents two connected bodies of material: a survey of artists’ books by Australian painter, sculptor and bookmaker Robert Jacks (1942-2014), and an extensive selection of publications drawn from Jacks’ own collection, many of which were purchased from Printed Matter in the early years of the organization.
