This exhibition is held in conjunction with Word Image Text Object, hosted this year by Indiana University. The College Book Arts Association supports and promotes academic book arts education by fostering the development of its practice, teaching, scholarship, and criticism. The College Book Art Association is a non-profit organization fundamentally committed to the teaching of book arts at the college and university level, while supporting such education at all levels, concerned with both the practice and the analysis of the medium. It welcomes as members everyone involved in such teaching and all others who have similar goals and interests. The association aims to engage in a continuing reappraisal of the nature and meaning of the teaching of book arts.
