The mission of San Diego Book Arts is to serve as an educational and creative resource to advance the book as a vital contemporary art form.

About Us

San Diego Book Arts is open to everyone interested in the art of the book and serves as an educational and creative resource.

San Diego Book Arts was established by a group of book artists in 1996 following a presentation to the Artists Guild of the San Diego Museum of Art, and it was designated a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 1999. Membership has grown to over 200 people in 4 countries, representing many different fields including artists, collectors, graphic designers, bookbinders, conservators, librarians, teachers, writers, and printmakers. For its members, SDBA publishes a bimonthly newsletter with local and national book arts information, mounts exhibitions, and offers teaching opportunities. It also brings members together through meetings, potlucks, collaborative projects, and outreach activities.

With a spirit of service and commitment, dedicated volunteers have kept San Diego Book Arts running for over 25 years. The organization is governed by a board that is supported by a variety of committees.
