Catalog for the "Center for Book Arts: The First Decade" exhibition at the New York Public Library from September 7 - November 29, 1984. From the foreword by Douglas Wolf, President, “The Center for Book Arts was founded ten years ago to develop and promote the arts of the book. This exhibition of members’ work, encompassing over one-hundred pieces ranging from fine printing and binding to unique book objects, multiples and artists’ books, is a perfect celebration of the Center’s vitality and diversity.” The exhibition was not intended to serve as a retrospective, but rather instead as an overview of members’ diverse approaches to contemporary book art and their current interests. The works included in the exhibition fall into four categories: traditional book formats, paper art, bookbindings, and art works based on or alluding to book forms. Organized by Francis O. Mattson.
