Dedicated to providing a forum for critical and creative engagement with artists' books.

Our mission is to engage with the field of artists books by means of critical discourse and creative exploration of the intersections of book arts, artists books, poetry, photography, experimental literature, printmaking, graphic design and other book-related creative endeavors.

We are interested in expanding the audience for artists who make books, and each issue of JAB includes essays, reviews, and artists projects focused on the book as an intermedia form of art. JAB is now published at the Columbia College Chicago Center for Book and Paper Arts.
