The Centre des livres d'artistes (CDLA) is the home of a growing collection of artists' books
and an exhibition space dedicated exclusively to this type of publications. The CDLA is based in the centre of France, in St Yrieix la Perche, forty kilometers south west of Limoges, a region famous for its porcelain and the last home of Raoul Hausmann
who died there in 1971. Since 2005, the centre occupies a building in the heart of the historical city centre, with three exhibition spaces, a bookshop, a library, a space for the diffusion of videos and sound pieces, storage and conservation space for the collection, educational facilities and offices.
