WHAT IS THE BOOK ARTS JAM?

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.

An important part of this one-day festival includes public demonstrations by
artists and artisans of variety of book arts skills--including craft binding
and book finishing, calligraphy, printmaking, letterpress printing, and
more. Attendees will join us for a "behind-the-scenes" look at the creative
processes, tools, and techniques that are used by book artists. The jam will
encourage visitors to learn, explore and create through demonstrations,
hands-on projects, and displays. The Book Arts Jam is sponsored by Bay Area
Book Artists and Foothill College, and funded in part by a grant from Arts
Council Silicon Valley, in partnership with the County of Santa Clara and
the California Arts Council.
