The Center for Book Arts provides book artists with special services and opportunities in addition to the benefits of their membership category. Artist Members are included in the Artist Slide Registry, a resource devoted exclusively to book artists which is used by curators, researchers, collectors, writers and other artists as a reference tool. They also enjoy the opportunity to submit works to The Centerís annual summer exhibition, a juried show which features works by members, as well as the opportunity to apply to be our Monthly Featured Artist. For more information on this gallery program, please contact The Center.

To apply for Artist Membership, fill out the information below and return this form with slides of your books, a current resume and a brief biography. Slides must represent at least three different bookworks produced within the last three years. The minimum number of slides required for application is five, though you may submit more. Please label all slides and include a detailed slide list on a separate piece of paper (give title, date, dimensions and medium).

If you are accepted as an Artist Member, we will retain the slides and information sent with this application and create a file for you in the Book Artist Registry. This file will remain active as long as you are a member of The Center for Book Arts, and we encourage you to update it regularly with new slides, exhibitions notices, etc.

The Center occasionally provides reproductions of artistís slides for use in articles, lectures and demonstrations. In all cases, The Center insists that the work(s) be named and that the artist or artists receive credit for its production.

As an Artist Member, I give The Center for Book Arts the right to use or reproduce the slides in my file in promoting me and my work, The Center for Book Arts or the book arts in general.
