Book Arts arts du livre Canada

Book arts arts du livre Canada Book Arts arts du livre Canada is the new Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild semi-annual magazine, published in May and November, and is included with the CBBAG membership. It replaces the CBBAG Newsletter (1983–Spring 2010) and the Journal (2007, 2009). Book Arts arts du livre Canada includes profiles of Canadian and other bookbinders and book artists; and articles on historical book forms, conservation, fine binding, innovative structures, and small press. The magazine showcases books from special collections in Canada, reviews books and exhibitions, and covers as many other subjects of interest to the CBBAG membership as space allows.

To propose an article, request advertising rates, or make a suggestion or comment, please contact the publishing team members by email: publications@cbbag.ca. They look forward to hearing from you.

   CBBAG Newsletters

From the founding of CBBAG in 1983 to February 2010, CBBAG produced an newsletter for members. Originally published three times a year, it quickly became a quarterly publication (in 2007 and 2009 one issue of those years was replaced with the CBBAG Journal). Back issues are no longer available, but for reference purposes an index to the 1983 - 1993 issues is available, as is a précises of articles in each issue, 1984 - 2000

book materials & techniques Bookbinding Materials and Techniques 1700-1920
By Margaret Lock (Toronto, 2003).
160pp., illustrated by 122 b&w photographs and diagrams
This book is a revised and expanded version of Two Centuries of Bookbinding: Materials and Techniques 1700-1900, published by CBBAG in 1991. At 160 pages and with 122 black and white illustrations, the new book is more than twice as long as the previous edition. The bindings reproduced include Canadian as well as European and American examples. Most of the photographs were taken by Margaret Lock, Diana Patterson, and Brian F. Summers. The diagrams were drawn by Sophie Nicol. The book was designed by Roy Nicol, and printed at Coach House Printing, Toronto.
     The book describes each step in hand binding a book, and explains the practical and aesthetic considerations that influenced these techniques. It then shows how all of these processes changed over the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries due to mechanization, specialization within the trade, the vagaries of taste, the availability and cost of materials, and developments in printing, publishing, and book selling. Bookbinders, book collectors, and all those who are interested in the book as a physical object will enjoy this book.
