The Los Angeles Book Arts Center is a creative, intellectual and technical 
resource for artists, collectors, dealers, curators and all individuals 
interested in the book and paper arts.  It is the center's mission to serve as a 
network and clearinghouse for information, education and resources. This is being 
accomplished through networking, workshops, lectures, publications, exhibitions 
and outreach.  Our commitment is to build a strong community as well as to 
further individual pursuits in the book and paper arts.  
 
The Los Angeles Book Arts Center (LABAC) was founded in September 2002.  Open 
meetings, hosted lectures, classes and continuous online discussion groups 
all contribute to building a strong book arts community in Los Angeles.  The Los 
Angeles Book Arts Center offers the broadest possible range of classes in the
