So we made a worthwhile discovery tonight. It’s not cutting edge, but it’s new to us, so it’s likely new to you, too, and if you have any interest in text encoding, this is a resource that you can really take a plunge into.
Johanna Drucker heads up the Digital Humanities over at UCLA (though this project is under the auspices of the University of Virginia), and one of her many cool projects is the Artist Books Online. From the website,
“ABsOnline consists of files that display artists’ books, exhibits, essays, and links to other collections or resource materials for this field. There is an index of agents (authors, publishers, binders, printers etc. of books and works represented), titles (of works, books, and sometimes objects), contributors (authors of essays, exhibits, commentary), and of collections and other resources.”
