      Grabhorn Fellows

      Each year, student members of the College Book Art Association have
      the unique opportunity to apply for the Grabhorn Fellows Program. Up
      to a maximum of 12 students, undergraduate and graduate, will be
      selected to visit the widely-respected Arion Press for a week (in
      August, 2009 and in June in subsequent years) during which they will
      observe as a group the operations of the Press. The program is jointly
      sponsored by the CBAA and the nonprofit Grabhorn Institute. The M&H
      type foundry, letterpress shop (composing room and pressroom), and
      bindery operations will be explained in detail as current projects are
      executed. Presentations on project development, text selection,
      rights, editing, collaboration, design, typography, and other elements
      of publication will be made by members of the Press. Selections from
      the archives of over eighty Arion Press books will be viewed. In
      addition, visits will be arranged to the Logan Collection of Artist
      Books at the Legion of Honor, Fine Art Museums of San Francisco, and
      Special Collections at the San Francisco Public Library. Scholars (and/
      or their institutions) will provide transportation to San Francisco
      for the week’s visit. The Arion Press and the Grabhorn Foundation
      will provide lodging as well as most breakfasts and lunches.
      Participants are expected to fund travel, dinners, and incidental
      expenses, including transportation from and to the airport.
