The schedule includes winter, spring and summer classes and workshops, so
you can plan ahead. There are 165 daytime, evening and weekend courses
offered in the Center's bindery and printshop, with the papermaking courses
held offsite at Dobbin Mill.

In the bindery you can learn everything from Basic Bookbinding to such
advanced subjects as the K118 binding (taught by Terry Buckley of The
London College of Printing on March 20).

The printshop offers everything from a Beginning Letterpress Intensive to
Vandercook Maintenance and Digital Letterpress Workshop.

The facilities are available for rental by the hour or monthly. There are
also artist-in-residence programs, internships, and a work/study program.

Currently in the Book Art Gallery is "The First One Who . . . !" an
exhibition of sculptural books celebrating individuals of
African ancestry who did it first (through April 5).

Many of the catalogs from the 140 exhibitions the Center has mounted are
still available. We do not yet have online ordering (coming this year!) but
you can call or email an order.

Poetry programs include the chapbook competition, a broadside series and

The Archive Project has over100 of the exhibitions in its database, but the
data is not yet all available in the  interactive online format.  You can
see the lists of artists in most exhibitions now, but not the list of
artworks or the essays. We are working on that now, and will announce here
on the book_arts-l when you can see more stuff. Despite its flaws, we are
getting about 3,000 page views a week on it.  Only one exhibition catalog
is now online (a scan of every page):
