The structure of an accordion book is simple: a long piece of paper is folded into pages that can be read like a book or spread open and displayed like a banner. The works on display in our exhibit The Illustrated Accordion take this form to a new level.
Spring and summer mean plenty of events and classes at the KBAC. We have a great list of class offerings for kids on summer break, so take a look and sign up soon—space is limited. Our new Book Arts Store offers a convenient local retail outlet for decorative papers, book arts supplies, and handmade products. With new exhibits opening every month in our gallery you’re sure to see some fascinating works of art.

The KBAC joins libraries and book arts centers from around the world in this delightful April Fools celebration of the art of the book! The Edible Book Festival has been celebrated in over 20 countries including Australia, Brazil, India, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, New Zealand, and Russia. Our judge for this year’s competition is Judy Sarkozy, owner of Sarkozy Bakery.Visit our Edible Book page to see entries from previous years and to get ideas. A Grand Prize, chosen by our judge, and a People’s Choice Award, chosen by vote among the public, will be given to the best entries. After the judging is completed we will eat the books!
