Since 1983 the Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild has worked to support the development of the book arts in Canada.The book arts include bookbinding, artists' books, papermaking, calligraphy, letterpress printing and typography, wood engraving, paper decorating, restoration, and conservation.

The Canadian Bookbinders and Book Artists Guild supports, promotes, and seeks to inspire participation in traditional bookbinding and contemporary book arts. It does this through the efforts of its members and volunteers in providing high quality book arts information, resources, education and networking opportunities to the Canadian book arts community and interested public.

The CBBAG Southwestern Ontario Chapter welcomes anyone residing in the region who is interested in learning about bookbinding and related book arts. All current members of CBBAG who reside in southwestern Ontario automatically become members of the CBBAG Southwestern Ontario Chapter. Others may join by expressing interest (no fee for Chapter membership). Contact us to join our mailing list or follow us on Facebook to find out when courses are happening!
