This site is currently under construction. Please be patient with us.


We are artists along the central coast of California - anywhere between Los Angeles and San Francisco - who have joined to share information, skills, energy, contacts, fun, and resources. We hope to deepen our own knowledge with others, and increase general interest in the book arts. We offer classes and workshops to beginners as well as experienced artists. We have an open-to-all annual exhibition once a year.

Eventually we hope to have a Book Arts Center where printing, papermaking, lettering arts, and bookmaking of all kinds will flourish. We welcome anyone who shares these passions, and invite them to join us at:
for notices about events and meetings.

If y ou have any suggestions for the website, please let us know about them. We need pictures to liven up the site. Perhaps you have a picture of your latest book. We'd be happy to show it to everyone.
