About the Author


The Center for Book Arts is one of the few contemporary arts organizations dedicated to the art of the book. Founded in 1974 in Manhattan, it was the first not-for-profit organization of its kind in the nation, and has since become a model for others around the world. The Center promotes active explorations of both contemporary and traditional artistic practices related to the book as an art object. It facilitates communication between the book arts community and the larger spheres of contemporary visual and literary arts. They achieve their mission through exhibitions, classes, public programming, literary presentations, opportunities for artists and writers, publications, and collecting.

Praise For…


This book is amazing. The tools are explained… the parts of a book (its anatomy) are discussed… the types of adhesives used are covered well. Even the different types of knots that will be needed to secure the paper is covered.
