In 1968, Dutch engineer Louis Koopman entrusted his collection of bibliophile and deluxe editions of French contemporary literature to the National Library of the Netherlands. The Koopman Collection has since grown to be the largest such collection in the Netherlands. This volume focuses on its most modern part, French artist’s books after 2000, and presents a selection of around 120 publications produced by more than 40 artists, printers, and publishers. Although these 21st-century books follow in the tradition of their classic predecessors, new aspects also emerge. Most notable is their international character, a result of the cooperation that is commonplace today.
