Her work has been exhibited and collected in special collections in libraries and museums including the Getty Center for the Humanities, the Marvin and Ruth Sackner Archive of Visual and Concrete Poetry, Houghton Library at Harvard University, and many others. In addition to her artistic work, Johanna Drucker has published and lectured extensively on topics related to the history of typography, artists' books, and visual art.
