Welcome! And About the Book Art Blog

Welcome to the Book Art Blog! We're just starting out so there's not much to see just yet. Hopefully in the next couple months we'll have a nice index of book artists and articles discussing current topics and trends in bookmaking, book art, and printing. We also hope to touch on the history of book art, the printing press, and books as rare, sacred, and otherwise artistic objects. For beginning book artists, we will also feature tutorials on book-related projects. Although we realize there is something odd about creating a digital platform for an often tactile art form, we feel that the world of book art is so huge that in lieu of being able to visit every artist and explore their works personally, this blog will at least serve as a springboard for sharing thoughts and images related to this vast subject in an easily accessible worldwide format. If you have any suggestions for content or book artists whom you'd like to see featured in the blog, please feel free to comment.

If you are looking for scrap-booking tips, this is probably not the place for you.

SUBMISSIONS: If you have an idea for an article or would like to have your book art published in the blog, please feel free to leave us a comment.
