Mission Statement

The San Francisco Center for the Book, a nonprofit organization, is a center of inspiration for the book arts world, featuring the art and craft of letterpress printing, bookbinding, and artists' bookmaking. We are a home for a diverse community of people to learn the art & craft of the handmade book.

Through public programs, exhibitions and classes, the Center promotes knowledge of the traditional book arts and exploration of experimental book forms.

Description

The San Francisco Center for the Book is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that fosters the joy of books and bookmaking, the history, artistry, and continuing presence of books in our culture and enduring importance as a medium of self-expression.

We provide both a home for Bay Area book artists and a place where the wider community can discover book arts.

Everyone is welcome here, experienced practitioners and newcomers alike.

Over 300 workshops annually offer learning at all levels: from introductory to focused advanced courses spanning traditional bookbinding, cutting-edge printing techniques and experimental book forms.

Exhibitions are designed to inform and inspire visitors.

Free public programs include opening receptions for the exhibition program, poetry readings, book release parties for our publications, gallery talks, Open Houses and other community events like the annual Roadworks Steamroller Printing Festival.
