Get Free Art Books

Quarantine Public Library is a brilliant online publisher of free short downloadable books created by independent writers, photographers, and artists. The diminutive books are designed to be printed on one sheet of paper, then folded into a zine-style book. The clever project was created by Katie Garth, a Philadelphia-based printmaker and graphic designer, and Tracy Honn, a Madison, WI–based printing history educator, and artist.

The contributors to the Quarantine Public Library were free to create whatever they want for the project. This has resulted in a wide-ranging collection of  43 books to date. There’s something for everyone with works in diverse genres.

You can support QPL project by buying a print-your-own library card or giving a donation through the Quarantine Public Library website. All proceeds generated by the project will be donated to EveryoneOn, a nonprofit that provides low-cost computers, internet service, and technology skills training to low-income families.
