The University of the Fraser Valley library, located in Abbotsford, BC, is very proud to be hosting the 2018 Art of the Book exhibition from September 10th to December 7th.  We are the sole host site in the Lower Mainland.  The Art of the Book is an international juried exhibition of the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild (CBBAG).  The exhibit opens in Victoria in August, and will be traveling for two years across Canada.

Take a look at our research guide (Libguide) on the Art of the Book here.   You'll find some great resources on the book arts and related disciplines.  Also, you'll find links to online book arts collections and altered book projects. 

Enjoy the ChekNews piece on the Art of the Book opening at the University of Victoria.

UFV's student newspaper, the Cascade, has written an article about the exhibit. 

Enjoy some photos of the reception held on September 18th celebrating the opening of the exhibition.
