Number ten of the CODE(X)+1 Monograph Series. Monica Oppen is owner and curator of an unusual private library dedicated to the contemporary artist's book. The collection, Bibliotheca Librorum apud Artificem, is situated in her home in Sydney, Australia where she welcomes students, scholars and artists who wish to use the library. In This Is Not a Cathedral, she writes about the origins, purpose, and her evolving curatorial practice with passion and candor.

"The Bibliotheca Librorum apud Artificem is a private collection of books made by printmakers, photographers, photomonteurs, painters, writers and poets. The collection focuses on books made in Australia but also includes works from overseas."

This limited edition of 500 copies was designed and printed by Peter Koch with the assistance of Jonathan Gerken.
