In 2003, Jude Robison and Caitlin Perkins were MFA students in Books Arts and Printmaking at UArts. Amazed at all the local book arts, library history, and publishing houses right here in Philadelphia, they wanted to build a “bridge between Philadelphia’s cultural riches and its passionate bibliophiles, artists, collectors, librarians, educators, and students of all ages.” In 2005, The Philadelphia Center for the Book was born.
The Philadelphia Center for the Book hosts exhibitions, workshops, and other book-related fun. To find out about what events they are hosting, and when, read their blog. They will keep you up to date on everything book and library related in the Philadelphia region.
This is an offset lithography, handbound book entitled Everything and Everyone: In the End We All Are One by Philadelphia Center for the Book member (and UArts grad!) Sarah Pohlman.
