Elisabeth Tonnard, an artist and poet working in the areas of artists’ books, photography and conceptual literature, will talk about her work Wednesday, Oct. 10, at noon in the Ward M. Canaday Center for Special Collections in Carlson Library.

Since 2003, Tonnard has published 25 books, which are included in numerous private and public collections. Her work features how visual culture and visual events are seen in the light of literature.

Her books have won numerous awards, including the jury prize of the Sheffield International Artists’ Book Prize last year for A Dialogue in Useful Phrases. Her works have been exhibited widely, and she is a member of the Artists’ Book Cooperative.

A total of 100 numbered copies of The Invisible Book and We Are Small were printed this year.

Tonnard received a master of arts degree in literature from Radbound University in the Netherlands, and a master of fine arts degree from the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, N.Y. She lives and works in the Netherlands.

A reception will follow her free, public talk.
