The Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild is pleased to announce that it will be accepting entries for its fifth juried members' exhibit, The Art of the Book '08, celebrating the 25th anniversary of CBBAG. A catalogue with photographs of all accepted entries will be published both in hard copy and on the CBBAG web site. Full Details and Entry Form: AB08_Call_for_Entries
The Art of the Book '08 will open in Toronto in the fall of 2008 and travel to several other locations across Canada from December 2008 through to the year 2010.
Up to three works per participant may be submitted and they must reflect at least one of the following distinct but overlapping elements of the book arts: Fine Binding; Papermaking; Paper Decorating (including marbling); Calligraphy; Box Making; Fine Printing; and Artists' Books.
The jurors are Nicole Billard, Crispin Elsted, and Ed Hutchins. Jurying will be held in two stages, Stage One from digital images, Stage Two from the work.
For payment by cheque, an entry free of $25 will be charged to CBBAG members ($85 for non-members, which includes 1-year membership). Because credit card payments are much more work to process (and to encourage payment by cheque), a credit card entry fee of $35 will be charged to CBBAG members ($95 for non-members, which includes 1-year membership).
Deadline for entries: June 30, 2007
