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.

WHAT IS IT?
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.
ARTISTS & BOOKBINDERS
CBBAG has a few curated lists of resources that we think will be of use to bookbinders and book artists.
