Pittsburgh Book Arts Collective - PBAC

Handmade book and Calligraphy by PBAC Member Lily Hoy

Handmade book and Calligraphy by PBAC Member Lily Hoy

The books you will see in the gallery were created by members of the Pittsburgh Book Arts Collective, a regional group that seeks to provide a forum for those interested in the book arts. Members have led and attended workshops in the Pittsburgh area and beyond, and their works have been exhibited at local venues such as Society for Contemporary Craft, University of Pittsburgh, Maridon Museum and the Pittsburgh Center for the Arts. Others have exhibited, worked and produced commissioned work internationally.

Book arts are a synthesis of form and content between the traditional book and contemporary art, and include a variety of areas of expertise, including traditional bookbinding structures, calligraphy, papermaking, collage, printing, artistís books, sculptural books, altered books, box making, experimental arts and electronic techniques. The artists use the book format in unique, personalized and often unconventional ways, using images, words, materials, forms, colors and shapes to convey their messages.
