Book Smart: Learning to Break the Rules


  • American Bookbinders Museum 355 Clementina Street San Francisco, CA, 94103 United States (map)

Where do Book Artists come from? Like apprentices of old, book arts students learn core bookbinding structures from skilled instructors. With their guidance and encouragement students transform basic structures into new and unique forms.

The American Bookbinders Museum is pleased to present works from three book arts programs: San Francisco Art Institute, Mills College and Oregon College of Art & Craft. Instructor models are on display alongside student works that introduce fresh, new forms.
