The Book Arts & Special Collections Department of the San Francisco Public Library is home to a wide variety of Collections. Books on the Book Arts, with examples of fine printing, can be found in most of our collections which include: the Robert Grabhorn Collection on the History of Printing and the development of the Book, the Richard Harrison Collection of Calligraphy and Lettering, the Nat Schumulowitz Collection of Wit and Humor, the Fox Collection of Early Children's Books, the Little Maga/Zine Collection, the Sherlock Holmes Collection, the Robert Frost Collection, the James D. Phelan California Authors Collection, and the Panama Canal Collection.
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.
