Founded in 2008, the College Book Art Association supports and promotes academic book arts education by fostering the development of its practice, teaching, scholarship and criticism.
The College Book Art Association is a non-profit organization fundamentally committed to the teaching of book arts at the college and university level, while supporting such education at all levels, concerned with both the practice and the analysis of the medium. It welcomes as members everyone involved in such teaching and all others who have similar goals and interests. The association aims to engage in a continuing reappraisal of the nature and meaning of the teaching of book arts. The association shall from time to time engage in other charitable activities as determined by the Board of Directors to be appropriate.
The association is governed by a Board of Directors elected by the membership. Membership in the association is open to all persons interested in book arts education and the furtherance of these arts. The geographical area covered by the organization shall include, but is not limited to all residents of North America.
