Art of the Book 2013, Calgary 

The Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild (CBBAG) is pleased to present Art of the Book 2013. This sixth juried travelling exhibition of members' work marks CBBAG's 30th anniversary. We've had great response to our "Intention to Participate" in Art of the Book 2013 thus far and have extended the deadline to October 1, 2012. We're excited to announce that a new grand prize of $1000 will be awarded in addition to the seven previously announced category prizes. CBBAG held its first Art of the Book exhibition in 1988, and every five years since. The exhibition travels across the country for two years post-opening and it is expected that the originality and artistic merit of these pieces will provide standards and inspiration for the Canadian book arts community. The categories for the exhibition include: fine binding, calligraphy, fine printing, paper making, paper decorating, box making, and artists' books.
