The Guild of Book Workers Journal is now accepting papers, articles, essays and proposals for photo galleries for our 2010 issue. Members and nonmembers are welcome to submit. We welcome submissions addressing any of the fields represented by the Guild’s membership, including but not limited to:

  • Bookbinding (Descriptions of techniques and how-to articles; discussions of particular structures, both old and new)
  • Conservation (treatment techniques, what does or does not work, noteworthy programs, history)
  • Artist’s Books (innovative structures, examinations of an artist’s body of work)
  • Book art techniques (calligraphy, marbling, paper-making, printing)
  • History (little-known events, figures, or movements; new findings about a period or particular development in the history of the book and book arts)
  • Profiles (interviews with book artists, practitioners, conservators, collectors)
  • Print “exhibitions” presenting selections from a collection, an exhibition, or an individual’s body of work (if accompanied by a profile of that individual).

In its new format, all submissions to the Journal will be peer-reviewed. Authors of accepted pieces will be expected to format their manuscript and image files according to our style guidelines, available upon request or online at

Send queries and electronic submissions (.rtf, .doc or .pdf formats with low-resolution placeholder image files)
