A Directory of Book Arts Educational Opportunities

In support of its mandate to increase educational opportunities CBBAG publishes a directory of teachers offering instruction in the various book arts. The latest directory was mailed to members in February of 1999 and the data has been used to create this web page.

The information contained on this page has been supplied by the individuals listed: they are solely responsible for the accuracy of the information. Teachers should be contacted directly regarding the details of the programmes offered.

Information about schools and and institutions listed has been gathered from the Internet. The data was updated in October 2003 and published in February 2004.

Any corrections, updates, and/or new listings should be sent to the CBBAG office for future revisions to this directory.

NOTE: Inasmuch as it is not possible for CBBAG to know the capabilities of many of the teachers listed, nor the schools and institutions, inclusion in this list should not be construed as an endorsement by CBBAG.
