Although Los Angeles/Southern California is often overshadowed by New York and San Francisco as a books arts center in the United States, the region has a long history of innovation in the medium. This exhibition will explore the development of book arts in Southern California starting in the 1960-70s to today. The exhibition will investigate the range of works that can be defined as “book arts” with an emphasis on innovative formats, hand-made works, and small editions. Additionally, an onsite bookmaking shop will be activated with demos and workshops by exhibition artists, area book arts instructors, and local students.

Big Sunday has sent groups to help out CAFAM on Big Sunday for the past few years.
