Rocky Mountain Chapter

The Rocky Mountain Chapter was organized to represent the Guild of Book Workers in the Mountain West. We invite all members of the Guild of Book Workers to join our chapter, although our membership focuses on residents of Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, Wyoming, Idaho, Nevada, and Oregon.


The Book Arts Roundup is our quarterly newsletter, founded in 1994 by Martha Little. We encourage you to send newsworthy information to the editor.


Our first members exhibit opened in Salt Lake City in 1996. The Nurtured Spirit, was co-sponsored by the Utah Calligraphic Artists. A second exhibit, entitled Pens and Needles was co-sponsored by the Denver Calligraphic Artists in 1998. The third was held in conjunction with the GBW Standards convention in Salt Lake in the fall of 2000.

Fantasy & Nonsense: A Juried Set-Book Exhibit

Fantasy & Nonsense is the delightful union of the work of James Whitcomb Riley, 19th century Ameri- can master of verse in dialect, and Berrot Hubrecht (aka Robert Buchert), whose whimsical wood en- gravings recall classic children’s illustrations of the late Victorian era.

Ninety copies in sheets are available at a reduced price of $90 for this competition. To see the book, visit the Tryst Press website.
