6th Annual Book Arts Jam

Deadline: June 30, 2007

The 6th Annual Book Arts Jam
Bay Area Book Artists (BABA)/Foothill College
October 20, 2007

The Annual Book Arts Jam at Foothill College provides an inside look at the world of artists' books and the book arts. The Book Arts Jam is a one-day celebration at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, California at which you can view one-of-a-kind handmade artist books, zines, letterpress books and broadsides, mailart, calligraphy, fine art prints, handmade paper and multiples by over 50 exhibitors who are book artists, craftspeople, and workers in the allied fields of letterpress printing, papermaking, printmaking, photography, collage, and paper decoration. The intent of the Book Arts Jam is to bring together book artists and audiences interested in the book arts to create a forum for artists to show and sell their work, and for visitors of all kinds-including book arts fans and artists as well as audiences new to book arts-to see the work of others and learn about the book arts.


The Book Arts Jam provides a mini-open studio for book artists to show and sell their work, to see the work of others and to educate visitors about the book arts. In addition to having a table to show and sell your wares, we invite all exhibitors to participate in a Virtual Exhibition slide show/CD that celebrates the work of Bay Area book artists and disseminates their
work to an interested audience.

The 6th annual Book Arts Jam will be held in the newly constructed Campus Center on the Foothill College Campus. There will be one huge room with individual exhibitor tables and side rooms for demonstrations and additional activities.
