Welcome to the Book Arts Guild

Created in 1979 by a small group of book enthusiasts, BAG is now the largest, longest lived, active book arts group in the Pacific Northwest. With over 250 members, BAG reflects the wide variety of arts and crafts sheltered under this umbrella; everything from bookbinding and calligraphy to bibliophilia and artists’ books.


We host lectures by major artists, coordinate instructional workshops with craftspeople, and support the regional book arts community. Our goal is to connect and support anyone interested in books, from artist to enthusiast.

Annual dues are $20. Membership provides announcements for monthly meetings, discounts on classes, and a connection to others in the community.  Lectures are free and open to the public, so feel welcome to attend one to see if you are interested in membership. Take the opportunity to explore this venerable, versatile and revolutionary medium!
