Since 1983 the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild has worked to support the development of the book arts in Canada. This web site is dedicated to that effort. The book arts include bookbinding, artists' books, papermaking, calligraphy, letterpress printing and typography, wood engraving, paper decorating, restoration, and conservation.
The Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild is pleased to announce an upcoming book arts exhibition:
Kindred Spirits: The Lucy Maud Montgomery Legacy as Interpreted by Contemporary Book Artists
The Kindred Spirits exhibition will be a juried collection of book artistry created by members of CBBAG. Scheduled to launch in conjunction with the L.M. Montgomery Institute's 2024 biennial conference, this 40-piece exhibition will open in mid-June 2024 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. The Kindred Spirits exhibition will then travel to five additional locations across Canada for 18 months.
CBBAG encourages all members to consider being a part of this exciting exhibition.For more information, click here for the Call for Submissions.
You know what CBBAG loves? Books! But along with books, CBBAG loves its MEMBERS!
Did you know CBBAG is a membership and volunteer-run association? This is why CBBAG is a member-focused organization and works hard to serve its members.
With that in mind, we want to encourage followers who might be considering membership, but haven’t yet taken the leap.
Everyone who becomes a new member between November 1 and December 31, 2023, will receive a credit to take a single-session (3 hour) online workshop in 2024 for free!
WHAT DO WE OFFER TO OUR MEMBERS?
CBBAG members are from all branches of the book arts: bookbinders, fine printers, papermakers, paper decorators, calligraphers, and book artists, as well as collectors, book dealers, librarians, and those who love books.
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.
