From its inception in 1983, the organization provided the quarterly CBBAG Newsletter to the membership.  Packed with articles, tips, and timely information, the Newsletter became the link from the central organization to all members.  Two issues of the CBBAG Journal were published (2007 and 2009).  In 2010, the decision was made to replace the Newsletter and Journal with the current magazine, 
Book Arts arts du livre Canada.
