About us

LuÔscius Books (founded by Henk van Stipriaan 1978 and Christien Bakx who joined later) is specialized in books on Dutch, modern & contemporary art and artistsí books which are rare and out of print.

The very first artistís book Christien bought was at the age of 19, she acquired the first edition of Andy Warholís artist book of Moderna Museet Stockholm 1968.

Nowadays the main focus is on artistsí books and multiples from fluxus, conceptual, zero and minimal art, but above all there is a large collection artbooks on Dutch artists of the 20th Century.

We publish artistsí books in a limited edition in cooperation with artists like On Kawara, Lawrence Weiner, Hermann Nitsch, Ben Vautier, Roman Opalka, Lee Ufan, Arnulf Rainer, herman de vries, Jan Henderikse and Yoko Ono.

The artistís books we publish with Personal Structures are always published in a small edition, not more than 200 copies of which the first 50 copies are DeLuxe and signed.

We also participate in book- and artfairs in the Netherlands and abroad, like Offprint, the New York Artbook Fair, Art Rotterdam etc.
