Bay Area Book Artists

Bay Area Book Artists is a group of independent artists bound together by a passion for the book arts. Since 1995, BABA has presented large and small exhibitions at galleries, museums and other public venues. In 2002, BABA members organized the first Book Arts Jam. The Jam became a free annual event to entertain and educate the public. BABA always welcomes new members.

The Book Arts Jam

The Book Arts Jam is an annual day-long celebration of the book arts, print arts and paper arts. The Book Arts Jam is held in mid-October. Organized by member volunteers, the event changes a bit every year, but generally includes: an Exhibitor/Vendor hall, Artist's Talks, Hands-on Activities, Demonstrations, an Auction of art-related books and supplies and more.
