Journal

The Guild of Book Workers Journal is published annually by the Guild of Book Workers and contains articles that address our members' interests in the arts and crafts of the book, including traditional bookbinding, paper making and decorating, conservation and restoration, calligraphy, the making of artists' books, and printing. Published continuously since 1962, the GBWJ welcomes submissions from members and nonmembers. All articles are reviewed and meet either peer review or editorial review standards.


Copies of the latest issue of the Journal are available in the Online Store.


Almost the entire run of GBW Journals has been indexed and there is now a complete table of contents up through 2009. Thanks to Alan Shalette for all the hard work he did to create this comprehensive index.
