little treasure – Faculty of Art Library, University of the West of England, Bristol

The works for little treasures are colllaborative artists’ books. All were produced between 1998 and 2001. Each is the result of a through-the-post joint project between Stephen Spurrier and the invited artists. For most of the artists the undertaking was an introduction to the artist book, and, for some, working through the post was a first, while, for other, the venture represented an initiation to the art of collaboration.

In 2001 little treasures was exhibited at RMIT Gallery, Melbourne and at the International Works on Paper Fair, Sydney. little treasures was exhibited at grahame galleries + editions in 2002.
