CBBAG has a few curated lists of resources that we think will be of use to bookbinders and book artists. The lists were most recently updated in 2021. The focus is generally on resources located in Canada. These lists are only sporadically updated, so notifications of dead links to are always appreciated.


This is a list of schools and organizations that offer courses in bookbinding and the book arts. These range from one-day workshops to degree programmes. Inclusion in this list should not be construed as an endorsement by CBBAG. List is current as of July 2021. Our focus in on Canadian opportunities, but where appropriate we have included locations in the United States and outside of North America. Any additions please contact

English to French Book Arts Terms

When CBBAG looked to hire a professional translator for The Art of the Book ’03 exhibition catalogue, the exhibition curators found that the translation service did not have available many bookbinding and book arts technical terms. CBBAG does not claim that this list is a definitive translation of book arts terms from English to French. There are many differences of opinion on this as in so much else in bookbinding and "livres d'artiste." It was decided to limit the list to translation from English to French only as it was quickly clear that CBBAG was not in a position to decide what would be useful to translate from French to English. CBBAG hopes that this list will be useful! The list was originally compiled by Shelagh Smith & Hélène Francoeur and CBBAG would like to acknowledge their dedication and hard work. It was reviewed & gently edited in 2021.
