[BKARTS] Grabhorn Fellowship

Grabhorn Fellows

Each year, student members of the College Book Art Association have the unique opportunity to apply for the Grabhorn Fellows Program. Up to a maximum of 12 students, undergraduate and graduate, will be selected to visit the widely-respected Arion Press for a week during which they will observe as a group the operations of the Press. The program is jointly sponsored by the CBAA and the nonprofit Grabhorn Institute. The M&H type foundry, letterpress shop (composing room and pressroom), and bindery operations will be explained in detail as current projects are executed. Presentations on project development, text selection, rights, editing, collaboration, design, typography, and other elements of publication will be made by members of the Press. Selections from the archives of over eighty Arion Press books will be viewed. In addition, visits will be arranged to the Logan Collection of Artist

Books at the Legion of Honor, Fine Art Museums of San Francisco, and Special Collections at the San Francisco Public Library. Scholars (and/ or their institutions) will provide transportation to San Francisco for the week’s visit. The Arion Press and the Grabhorn Foundation will provide lodging as well as most breakfasts and lunches. Participants are expected to fund travel, dinners, and incidental expenses, including transportation from and to the airport. Participating students will be expected to make presentations about their Grabhorn Fellows experience at their respective institutions during the semester following the visit.
