CBBAG has produced a Translation of Book Arts Terms, from
English to French which grew out of the need to prepare a list of terms for use by the
translator engaged for The Art of the Book '03 exhibition. It is hoped that this document will be of
use to book artists, as well as those writing about the book arts.
As well, in August 2014, Suzy Morgan, book conservator and Preservation Specialist at ASU
Libraries, and Peter Verheyen, creator of the Book Arts Web and the BOOK_ARTS-L
listserv, launched an international dictionary of bookbinding and conservation terms, free of use to anyone.
CBBAG Book Arts Supplies List (from 2005, but updated from time to time) is available online.
In addition to the CBBAG Membership List, available to members only, CBBAG has compiled several directories:
• A Directory of Book Arts Educational
Opportunities, (2ND edition), a directory of teachers
and institutions offering instruction in the book arts
• A Directory of
Book Artists, (4TH edition, 2009), is now available online.
The directory includes bookbinders (design, edition, conservation, restoration), hand printers,
calligraphers, papermakers, paper decorators, book artists, and illustrators.
Book arts DVDs are available for borrowing by CBBAG members for the cost of postage plus a $5 handling fee. After a number of delays, a revised list of DVDs and details on borrowing will be available online in June 2014. Coming soon: stay tuned for details!
You can find the answer to two frequently asked questions: "What is bookbinding?" and "Are
there jobs in this field in Canada?", which includes a brief Recommended Reading List & a brief Suppliers List.
If you are looking to have a book restored/repaired, you'll find the answers to some frequently asked questions on the
subject, as well as some information on How to Find Someone to Repair a Book.
