Does your artist book have a… soft cover? Are you confused by the intricate but polarising differences between a zine and a magazine? When do either of those become a ‘book’? Now, with the ‘Validated’ self-inking stamp set, you can finally have your publications authenticated on behalf of Artists’ Books Cooperative, relieving yourself of imposter syndrome, sleepless nights, and collection rejections.
