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
