LIBROS is New Mexico’s Book Arts Guild offering a variety of inspiration for both traditional and experimental artist’s books. We hold regular meetings on the 1st Saturday of the month, as well as annual and special exhibits.
We welcome new members and guests – please see our Calendar page a full list of upcoming meetings.
On February 2nd Jimmy and Allison Abraham will be welcoming us for a tour and demonstration of Sawmill Press, located near the Harwood Art Center. (Directions will be posted on our Yahoo list.) In the first portion of the tour we will learn about the history of the press and about their favorite resources including books, printing websites and suppliers. We will get to see examples of Jimmy’s work, Allison’s work, projects from previous printing workshops, guest printers, and work from other presses. The second portion will be a tour of the studio. There will be an explanation of presses and equipment and a review of type and ornaments. Then the Abraham’s will do a printing demonstration on the Vandercook. Also three of Jimmy’s books/pamphlets of poetry will be for sale. This promises to be an intimate and in depth tour of a local private press.

Don’t leave home without your bookbinding kit! Remember that many of our meetings are “hands-on” and the best way to learn new techniques is to try them yourself!
