The Art Book Review was a webzine of reviews concerning art books. Items include seventy-seven publications by various artists/authors and presses. Artist books would be traded for reviews.
The Art Book Review was a webzine and “compendium of reviews about books vaguely relating to the subject of art” which operated from 2012–2018. It was first founded and edited by Andrew Berardini and Sarah Williams, later edited by Jaye Fishel as well as Rosie Prata, and it was managed by Meg Whiteford. This collection is the remainder of TABR’s “outpost” at the Los Angeles Contemporary Archive from 2014–2015, where they could be found on Friday afternoons. [Sources: 1, 2]
The collection features the library of The Art Book Review, comprising of seventy-seven books by various artists/authors and presses. The contents were not the subject of TABR reviews.

Scope and Contents
Objects: A solid-state drive containing the blog archive spanning five years. The drive is housed with a cable in a foam-lined box featuring a cutout in the shape of a muscular witch.
Sources suggest this collection should be renamed "The Art Book Review" unless doing so would disrupt alphabetization in the index. Also noticed that the "Artist," "Date Acquired," and "Reference #" tabs in the index are all broken, and this appears to be an issue across the entire website.
