ABOUT THE CENTER FOR BOOK ARTS

The Center for Book Arts is dedicated to the preservation of the
traditional
crafts of bookmaking, as well as encouraging contemporary interpretations

the book as an art object.   Founded in 1974, it was the first

organizes
exhibitions related to the art of the book and offers an extensive

contemporary bookbinding, letterpress printing, fine press publishing, and
other associated arts. The Center for Book Arts is supported by local
businesses, various foundations including The Lenrow Fund, The Milton and
