Founded June 23, 1994, Book_Arts-L is a mailing list based at Syracuse University, and managed by Peter Verheyen. It currently claims almost 3000 subscribers worldwide, among them practicing bookbinders, book-artists, marblers, papermakers, printers, collectors, curators in libraries, and people just interested in our wide and varied field.
All members are free to post anything they feel might be of interest to others. This has included everything from discussions such as what is a book, to technical Q&A, to offerings of services and supplies by vendors. I do ask that subscriber stay "on topic" with regards to the subject matter of the list. I encourage posting notices about services related to the book arts by vendors, exhibition notices, and advertisements of related books for sale, including "fine press" books, especially if available in sheets.
Contributions sent to this list are automatically archived. The Permanent Archives through July 19 are hosted here at the University of Alabamab,t the new CoOL site hosted by the American Institute of Conservation, and postings from June 16 to the present being hosted at Syracuse University. As with any web based resource, the archives are often available on other web sites because of the activities of web robots or other search engines. By subscribing to Book_Arts-L, you acknowledge that you understand any message you post or anything said about you is public information, may be spread over the entire world by way of the world wide web, and that anyone with a web browser may access the Stanford archives. Once archived, messages become part of the historical record of discourse in this field and will not be removed from the archives.
In order to protect the privacy of subscribers, no membership information will be made public, though the posters identity and email address will become part of the permanent record in the list archive.
Postings may not be re-printed in any form without the express consent of the author - Please respect their contributions & ©
