Formation: A Juried Exhibition of the Guild of Book Workers


Formation includes 50 works by members of the Guild of Book Workers. These works span the genre of “book arts”, including artist books, fine bindings, and broadsides. The exhibition is juried by three outstanding artists and Guild members – Sarah Smith, Coleen Curry, and Graham Patten. The exhibition will travel to five locations around the country, beginning at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts and closing at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, PA. The annual Guild of Book Workers Standards of Excellence conference will coincide with the show being at MCBA, hopefully providing opportunity for added conversation and exposure of the world of book production to a larger community of people.
