4.2: Artist Books , circa 1978-2008

Janice Lowry wrote and illustrated the many handmade books found among her papers. These include comic book stories about her family, collage booklets, and children's books. Some are photocopied and bound. Both "The Cat and the Fiddle" and an untitled 1988 book combine the lyrics of a well-known song and photocopied and hand-colored magazine collages. A few of the books are comic books about her life, including a series called "Family Tales." Files include photocopied printed versions as well as some of the original artwork.
The artist books were named by Lowry and are arranged in chronological order.
