the center for book arts 28 west 27th street

Jacob Farber, the administrator and finance manager of The Center for Book Arts, says this is the quintessential part of this fascinating company: “We teach book binding and letter press classes.” He added, “We even have hot rubber stamping machines. We are also a place for artists to come and learn how to make a book incorporating their own art.”

Every aspect of this space is dedicated to the art and the appreciation of books in all of its forms. Opened in 1974, the non-profit Center is the first of its kind, devoting its entire attention to books. In addition to the classes, there are art exhibitions. As the owner of a bookstore for many years, I was afforded the opportunity to learn firsthand about yet another aspect of the book business.
