Book Arts Links: United States

Here are some links to book arts-related places in the U.S. Haven't been to them all myself -- maybe someday! I'll be updating and adding more links as I find more to add. Right now, this is a quick and dirty list -- I'll fix it up more and make it look pretty when I get the time.

If you know of some other great book arts places to visit in the U.S., please let me know about them in the comments section, and I'll add them to the list.

State Centers for the Book: The Library of Congress website has listings for all 50 state centers for the book. They are non-affiliated organizations, and their programs vary quite a bit, but I'm including this website, as some of the state centers may have postings about book arts - related events.

You missed http://www.geneseearts.org/Book-Arts/About-Printing-&-Book-Arts.php It is a fantastic part of the bigger organization. They offer all sorts of classes in printing, paper making, book binding, and even box making as related to book arts. I've taken lots of classes from them and LOVE them all.
