Publishing Opportunity

The Bonefolder welcomes submissions of articles for publication. Articles should relate to the fields of bookbinding, book arts, decorative techniques, education, exhibition reviews, tips & tricks, or book reviews. Articles that have not be published elsewhere will be given first consideration.

The language of the Bonefolder is English, though it may be possible to work with authors in the translation of non-English articles.

Because the Bonefolder is published electronically we are able to reach a worldwide audience at minimal cost. Issues will be released as PDF files which can be opened with Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Articles are accepted on a rolling basis. However, to be included in the Fall 2009 issue, the deadline is August 15.

Submitting your text:
Only completed articles should be submitted to the editorial review board. This includes proof-reading.

Articles may be included either as plain text in email letters, or as word processor files attached to email letters.


Any references should be included in ( ) following the text they refer to, and should follow the Chicago Manual of Style. If links are included, include the full URL.

Authors retain copyright of their articles and are free to publish them elsewhere. In submitting articles for publication, authors grant the Bonefolder worldwide distribution rights for their article as it appears in the journal.

The Bonefolder will make use of the Creative Commons licensing/copyright agreement.
