The Flyleaf: IOBA Newsletter
There are books about art, books by artists, and “art books,” and there are also books as art. No, I’m not talking about books that have been cut, burned, painted, folded, or altered to be pieces of art. I mean a book that is so beautiful it is a piece of art in its original form.
Covers of unique materials or images, pages of beautiful papers, end papers that would look beautiful framed, gilt or painted edges – all of these can make a book a piece of art, a “book as art.”

The Standard: IOBA Journal
The Summer 2016 issue of The Standard features several pieces on the Colorado Antiquarian Book Seminar (CABS), including an essay on the IOBA scholarship program, and accounts from three IOBA Scholarship attendees of the 2016 seminar.
Rounding out the issue is a piece on book fairs by Jonathan Smalter, and a fluff piece (literally!) profiling Blake, shop cat at Philadelphia Rare Books & Manuscripts Company.
