The Cornell Book Arts Club was formed as a means to promote bookbinding, fine printing, and other arts and crafts related to books produced by hand. Its purpose is to bring together practitioners of book arts, and to provide a forum for education, awareness and advancement through activities such as workshops and public lectures. Although it is sponsored by the Cornell Library, membership is open to any one interested in the arts of the book. Annual membership is $10.
