[BKARTS] University of Iowa Center for the Book



Dear Friends of the Book Arts:

The University of Iowa Center for the Book has revised its web site and
packed in much new information.  A few pages remain under construction, but
we invite your attention to http://www.uiowa.edu/~ctrbook.

The Center offers a graduate certificate in book arts or book studies but
also coordinates a wide range of courses that can be incorporated in both
undergraduate and graduate programs in many schools (including Art and Art
History, Journalism and Mass Communication, and Library and Information
Science) and departments (including English, History, Religion, American
Studies, the Writer's Workshop, and many others).  The Iowa program offers
unique strength in that it brings together a long tradition of fine and
hand press printing, hand papermaking, bookbinding, calligraphy, and other
arts and technologies of the book; an exceptional, diverse faculty with
interest in book studies; splendid production and study facilities;
outstanding library resources; and a larger community supportive of the
book arts.

Note that there are now instructions, under "Book and Paper Store", for
ordering Iowa handmade papers and book kits, including the Ethiopian
bookbinding kit in three sizes. The book kits may be of particular interest
to those of you who demonstrate or offer instruction in book structures.
