      The Guild of Book Workers is the national organization in the United States
      for all the book arts. It was founded in New York City in 1906 to "establish
      and maintain a feeling of kinship and mutual interest among workers in the
      several hand book crafts." Among its early members were well-known
      artist-craft workers. Today, the Guild is almost 1000 members strong, and
      embraces all the book arts - from binding to printing to marbling to
      calligraphy; from the traditional to the avant-garde. Our members come from
      across the United States and around the world. For more information about
      our organization, please visit the GBW website
      <http://palimpsest.stanford.edu/byorg/gbw>

      Please plan to join us to celebrate the Guild of Book Workers' 100th
      Anniversary!
