This website accompanies the exhibition catalogue Prescriptions that presents artists’ books on wellbeing and medicine. Artists’ books are works of art that are often published in small editions or produced as one-of-a-kind objects. Rather than a mere container for ideas, artists’ books integrate their formal means of realisation with their themes, and invite handling, touching and interaction. The project explores how this intimate and tactile medium can be used to express experiences of illness and inform healthcare education.
