In 2014, Cardiff University Library received a considerable donation of Artists’ Books from Ron King of the Circle Press, one of the most influential practitioners of the Book Arts.

In December 2015, Special Collections and Archives (SCOLAR), in association with the Centre for Editorial and Intertextual Research and Cardiff School of Art and Design, hosted a major international conference to celebrate this donation. Plenary speakers included Sarah Bodman, John Christie, Ron King and Sam Winston.
