Series 4: Book Projects , 1984-1999
2.5 Linear feet
Box 4-6

Book Projects consists of correspondence, research files, book agreements, manuscripts, and photographs mostly documenting Constance Glenn's involvement with the Harry N. Abrams Inc. artists' sketchbook series. Co-authored by Jack Glenn, Constance's husband, the Glenns wrote the text and edited the published sketchbooks of Jim Dine, Roy Lichtenstein, Lucas Samaras, Wayne Thiebaud, and Robert Motherwell. Files also exist on other artists who were part of this series, but ultimately did not publish their sketchbooks at this time. These artists include Eric Fischl, Richard Diebenkorn, and Ellsworth Kelly.
Also included is a subgroup of proposed books consisting of correspondence, research material, writings, and some book agreements.
There is one unidentified audio cassette that was discovered upon processing. It is kept with Jim Dine's book project files in its original order.
