“…Breslav likewise conceives of no such ladder. For her and Blonde Art Books, the boundaries between art book and “art” (or “book”) are fluid. As with many collectors, her bookshelves do not differentiate between mediums: art books, zines, histories, and theoretical texts sit side by side. Each object can serve as inspiration for an aspect of her overarching artistic practice—and each object possesses, as it would to any collector, some type of personal value. “They often bring me back to a place in which I maybe met the artist or a bookshop where I had an extraordinary experience,” she says. Her invocations of memory, inspiration, and social encounters illustrate moreover the ultimate appeal of this type of collecting: creating and collaborating.” —-  Why Collect Artist Books and Zines?, by Joe Bucciero, ArtSlant, July 22, 2015.

“As a publisher myself, and because I love independent, small run print projects, because I love the way that material books must now justify themselves in the face of digital publishing strategies, because that material justification makes the book infinitely more interesting, as publishers and authors alike push and pull against the boundaries of conventional book making—for those reasons and more, I wanted to ask Breslav about the origin and agenda of BABS.” – In Defense of Material Circulation: Blonde Art Books’ Traveling Show.
