About Us

The Atlanta BookArts Collective (ABAC) provides opportunities, through programs, workshops, and sharing, to learn more about both paper and book arts. . . We all love books. . . . We explore everything from artists’ books to fine bindings, from repairs to type setting. . . . Our members are bookbinders, conservators, calligraphers, printers, and paper makers.

The group is open to artists, teachers, students, librarians, printmakers, photographers, papermakers, conservators,  calligraphers, and anyone who is enthusiastic about traditional bookbinding  and/or contemporary and experimental book arts.

At monthly meetings, currently held at Paper Trail Art Center, ABAC offers demonstrations/workshops where you can learn how to create  hand-made books and to talk to like-minded individuals who want to share  resources, inspiration, and information about artist books.  All levels, from  beginner to professional, are welcome.  You can join the group at any  time.

Our goal is to build a supportive community of book  artists.  As we become established, we plan to present occasional workshops with  professional book artists and also organize regular exhibitions of the book  arts in  Atlanta.
