About me

I am Senior Research Fellow for Artists' Books at the Centre for Fine Print Research (CFPR), where I run projects investigating and promoting contemporary book arts. I am also Programme Leader for MA Multi-disciplinary Printmaking at the Bower Ashton Campus. http://www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/sarah-bodman/

I'm the editor of the Artist's Book Yearbook a biennial reference publication on contemporary book arts, published here at UWE by Impact Press, and also the editor of the Book Arts Newsletter and The Blue Notebook journal for artists’ books.  

I work with other institutions nationally and internationally, with the ABPP Artists’ Books Partnership-exhibition Programme which loans books from the CFPR collection to universities, collections, schools, societies, galleries, libraries and bookshops around the world. This programme runs on a rolling basis, with free loans of books to set up exhibitions, workshops, study groups or displays that promote the subject to a wider community.

I also completed a two-year AHRC funded research project with Tom Sowden in early 2010 -

'In an arena including digital and traditional artists' publishing formats - what will be the canon for the artist's book in the 21st Century?' which investigated the current state of artists' publishing in collaboration with artists, curators, academics, librarians and publishers.

Area of expertise

My research areas of interest include: artists' books and printmaking.

I curate exhibitions, write for reference publications and work with external institutions in the field of artists' books.

Some of my practice includes collaborating with the poet and artist Nancy Campbell, on an annual video and book production for World Book Night since 2010. Each event is in tribute to a particular novel. For more information on any artists' books projects or publications please visit: http://www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk
