Letter Press Book Art

Betty Bright’s blog.  The project is, “ a blog I launched to gather and document the state of letterpress printing since 1980. This blog supplements my research underway since October 2008, which considers the growing interest in letterpress printing, not just within the book art world, but also as it participates in the larger contexts of art and literature, politics and publishing, and other influences that affect how artists make art.”

Felt & Wire

Felt & Wire is about the universe of design, paper and print — from posters to packaging, from memorable mail to beautiful books, from invitations to artistic innovations. Felt & Wire reveals the fascinations, avocations and professions of the people who inhabit this continually expanding and evolving universe. It is a community, by and about those of us who are paper-obsessed.

A well curated blog on book arts. They feature “artist’s books, illustration, book binding, typography, sketch-booking, scrap-booking, print-making, paper making, altered books, how to guides, zines, paper engineering and more!” An enthusiastic blog that has many useful links.

Book Art Object

BookArtObject is a loose collective of artists who sometimes work in the medium of artists’ books and who come together occasionally to make small editions of work in response to text.  Participants don’t pay a membership fee and there are very few obligations… they can dip in and out of the editions as they please.

Library of Lost Books

Turning old books into art. One post reflects on an artist finding an old dictionary from 1886 and letter pressing some definitions found onto small cards. A lovely revitalization of words.

The Pressbengel Project

Pressbengel-Banner2

The Pressbengel Project uses Ernst Collin’s Der Pressbengel, a 1922 dialogue between a bibliophile and bookbinder about the trade and art of bookbinding as a starting point for further discussions of the the German bookbinding tradition. I (Peter D. Verheyen) translated this work in 2009-2010 as The Bone Folder, originally in the Guild of Book Workers’ Journal. It is also offered in various versions for reading or downloading in signatures in the left sidebar. The site is also used for reports of my personal binding projects and other topics I find interesting.
