Series 7: Books and Printed Material , 1916, 1930s-1979
(Boxes 6-13, 19, OV 28; 8 linear feet)

Series consists of books and printed material collected by Nevelson and/or her assistants, documenting her various professional and artistic achievements throughout her career, her critical and commercial success, and her role as a personality and minor celebrity in the mass media late in her career. Books include ones given as gifts to Nevelson by friends or admirers and ones about or featuring segments on Nevelson. Printed material includes clippings from magazines and newspapers of reviews, articles, and routine listings of Nevelson's exhibits, as well as some publications featuring the same; exhibition catalogs, announcements, and invitations for Nevelson's group and solo shows, as well as some for the shows of others; and press releases, newsletters, bulletins, announcements, calendars of events, catalogs, programs and other printed material relating or referring to Nevelson or merely featuring her name in print. The extent of this material is suggestive of Nevelson's concern and effort to document and keep a record of her accomplishments.
Printed material is arranged in rough chronological order according to type. Some material is arranged in files according to subject at the end of the series. Books, clippings, and other voluminous amounts of printed materials were not scanned. Nevelson's exhibition catalogs were scanned.
