THE BOOK ARTS LEAGUE

The Book Arts League is a nonprofit community arts organization working to preserve the historic tools and crafts of the book arts, including printing, typography, bookbinding, and papermaking, from which spring the literacy and communications technology on which modern society is built.

The Book Arts League is open to all persons interested in keeping alive the book arts and promoting a love of books and literacy.

It is the mission of the League to serve as a community resource by preserving for the public book arts of great historical importance while fostering their use in contemporary creative work.

THE GUILD OF BOOK WORKERS - ROCKY MOUNTAIN CHAPTER

The Guild of Book Workers was founded in 1906 to "establish and maintain a feeling of kinship and mutual interest among workers in the several hand book crafts." Among its early members are well-known artist-craft workers such as bookbinder Edith Diehl and printers and typographers W.A. Dwiggins and Frederic W. Goudy.

The Guild still believes, as did its founders, that there is a responsibility among civilized people to sustain the crafts involved with the production of fine books. Its members hope to broaden public awareness of the hand book arts, to stimulate commissions of fine bindings, and to stress the need for sound book conservation and restoration.
