Xylon-Québec publisher


The publication of collective artist’s catalogues and books allows the distribution of the members production, proving the quality and diversity of relief printing in Quebec. By that very fact, the publisher also becomes the distributor, two complementary roles that offer the public a chance to notice the enthusiasm and the constant renewal of this art form.

These artist’s books are part of the Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec’s collections and belong in the transmission cycle of Quebec’s history to posterity. By that very fact, the artist’s book fills a social role. It becomes the informant of the Xylon-Québec members’ production within the general public and contributes to crystallize moments in the development of Quebec’s society in the eyes of foreign observers.
