The New England Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers has worked to build a community of book workers, conservators and artists who can connect to share ideas and techniques to sustain ourselves and our craft. One aspect of this mission is through member exhibitions. The first exhibit took place in 1982 in Boston at Bromer Booksellers. That exhibit displayed all manner of work from blank models, design bindings, calligraphy, artist books, fine printing, marbled paper and paste paper. Each subsequent exhibit brought more interest and continued to showcase the diversity of our member’s interests and talents.
