Work & Hobby
Bookbinding consists of many different types of work, particularly in North America where it can be difficult to specialize and make a living.
Book Arts arts du livre Canada is published twice a year. It features book arts events, book artists, book and exhibition reviews, technical articles, and historical essays.
