Why members have joined

To be a part of a non-for-profit, charitable national arts service organization (founded in 1983) is no small thing, especially since CBBAG is volunteer-run. Members joined CBBAG (pronounced "cabbage") to support and grow a community in the book arts.

To be a member of CBBAG means more than one thing. It means:
- having book arts friends and creating together a spirit of community in hand book workers and book artists
- providing learning opportunities whether on your own (Home Study) or in a group (in person or online workshops)
- fostering excellence through exhibitions and publications
- promoting public awareness of book arts

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.

Many members donate their time and have become taken on leadership roles. If you are interested in becoming involved as a board member or with the magazine, please let CBBAG know CBBAG is a not-for-profit, federally incorporated registered charitable organization lead by a board of directors. Please read recent Annual Reports and also visit the Volunteer page.
