How do I find out about the history of the book?

The Book Preserved

In 1974, The Center for Book Arts was founded and incorporated in New York City. Today, the center thrives with seminars, competitions for designers and writers, and is a wonderful blend of history and avante garde.

Take a course in papermaking or book binding to develop a deeper feel for the history and possibilities of paper. Experiment with possibilities for new ideas in client projects or for your own graphic techniques. Begin to utilize the paper not only as a canvas, but also as an element in your design.
