The book arts include bookbinding, artists' books, papermaking, calligraphy, letterpress printing and typography, wood engraving, paper decorating, restoration, and conservation.

Minibook Package

This was the brainchild of Spike Minogue (CBBAG member). With the support of Jose Villa-Arce (CBBAG President), a minibook package was sent it to all our members.

It was wonderful and very timely.

A member commented that it arrived just at the right time; when her creativity was stymied.
