Graduate Program in Artist Books

>I was wondering if anyone could tell me of any excellent graduate programs
>in Bookmaking/ Artist Bookmaking.

I teach in the graduate program in Book Arts at Purchase College, State
University of New York. It is a small program, only two students are
admitted each year. Program is two year MFA., though many students take
third year to do thesis. Faculty besides myself includes Antonio
Frasconi, Warren Lehrer, Margot Lovejoy, and Brad Freeman. We have
visiting lecturers, too. (The program is in Artists' Books, not
bookbinding or conservation.)

Aside from an enthusiastic faculty, we have wonderful facilities, with
complete letterpress shop (with the Pforzheimer Collection of Historic
Type), large offset facilities, and electronic publishing lab: one room
all Macs, the other all PC's and workstations. We also have a small

Purchase College, SUNY, which is the flagship art school of the SUNY

City, and a mile or so from the Connecticut line. Purchase encompasses
