The College Book Art Association (CBAA) invites you to submit work to BiblioTech, a juried book arts exhibition held during the 2012 CBAA Conference in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This show is open to both regular members and student members of CBAA. Non-members are welcome to submit work if they pay the membership fee as well as the entry fee.

Technology can be interpreted as any mode of making in artist's books undefined including but not limited to: books involving older technologies such as handbound books, letterpress printed books and broadsides, and books involving newer technologies such as laser cutting, digital printing and books that exist in purely digital form (video). Members are also encouraged to enter works that combine old and new technologies in innovative ways.

Artist books, sculptural books, book objects, altered books, videos of artists books, digitally produced books or broadsides are encouraged. Any medium, any style.

JURORS - BiblioTech will be juried by Ruth Rogers and Emily McVarish.

CASH PRIZES & AWARDS - Two $200 cash awards and several institutional purchase prizes will be awarded.

ENTRIES - A maximum of two artworks may be submitted per artist. Entries must be received online no later than AUGUST 15, 2011. Artists accepted for the exhibition will be notified via email.
