Robert; do you have any idea if they accept international entries? I can't find any mention of that on their website or the form and just wondered if you knew? Thanks for the info either way.

CALL FOR ENTRIES - Pop-Up Now! A National Juried Exhibition of Movable Books Pop-up books captivate and excite the child in all of us. They come to life as three-dimensional works of art hidden inside the pages of a book. Pop-Up Now! is looking for handmade artist books that pop-up, move, slide, twirl, whirl, light up, or even sound off. This national, juried exhibition of handmade movable artist books will be held at 23 Sandy Gallery in conjunction with the biennial conference of the Movable Book Society to be held in Portland in September. Entries must be received by July 20, 2010. More information and a complete call for entries can be found at

I am an artist and gallerist interested in showing artists books. Please read the following describing my open call for submissions for my April exhibition of artist's books.

For the month of April climate/gallery in NYC presents: The Artful Scriptorium • An Artist's Book Exhibition International Open Call for Artist's Books. Deadline for submission is March 22, 2010. The exhibition is not juried. All work submitted to the exhibition will be exhibited. However, 10 Featured Artist Awards will be chosen from this exhibition by Maddy Rosenberg, Curator and Executive Director of CENTRAL BOOKING, a gallery and cultural nexus devoted to the Art of the Book in NYC. The gallery will publish an exhibition catalogue that will include examples of pages of the books from the show of the 10 artists. The 10 artists will be featured on the gallery’s website. Every artist in the exhibition will have a listing in the catalogue with one thumbnail image of a page from their book. All of the artist’ names in the show will be archived in the Exhibitions pages on the gallery’s website.

EACH ARTIST MAY SUBMIT 2 ARTIST’S BOOKS PER SUBMISSION FOR THE EXHIBITION • Generally, no book should be larger than can be displayed on a 12 inch (30cm) wide podium style display, or that cannot lay conveniently on a table. Any type or style of artist book including foldouts, accordion style (concertinas), scrolls, or loose pages contained in a box, and in any medium utilizing any sort of ground, or page materials, may be submitted. All sorts of binding are welcome. Books that are purely creative text are welcome. However, books that are meant to be read, as say a novel, or where the story text alone is the key to the creative content of the book, and having no extra-creative aspect about them, are not welcome for this exhibition. Participants in this exhibition must realize that their work will be handled by the visiting public. Care will be exercised by the gallery to ensure that the books are handled with care. Email through the gallery’s website if there are questions.

"Artists' books are books, or book-like objects, over the final appearance of which an artist has had a high degree of control; where the book is intended as a work of art in itself." Stephen Bury

The Center for Book Arts is pleased to announce the Edward and Sally Van Lier/Stein Family Scholarship Fund for Advanced Studies in Book Arts. In 2010, the Center will award three scholarships to individuals who have demonstrated a commitment to the artistic endeavors of the book arts. The purpose of this program is to provide opportunities to individuals committed to developing careers in the book arts field, and to further the growth of this artistic profession.

The award includes a $3,000 cash stipend plus a materials budget of $1,000 and 24 hour access to the Center’s printing and binding facilities for a full year. Artists also receive a tuition waiver for courses throughout the year, planned in conjunction with the staff. Experienced printers and bookbinders will be available to advise the artists on issues of materials and techniques as they arise. Scholars will be required to complete an artist project by the end of the scholarship period, with the possibility of an exhibition in our gallery space. They will have the opportunity to teach certain core courses at the Center, depending on their background. They will also have the opportunity to collaborate in special publications and artist projects. No travel or lodging reimbursements are available.

Postmark deadline is May 1, 2010.

Call for Entries- 2010 Artist Members Exhibition at the Center for Book Arts
We're is pleased to invite Artist Members to submit artworks created between 2006 and 2010 to be considered for the 2010 Artist Members Exhibition tentatively titled: I’ll cut thru: Pochoirs, Carvings, and Other Cuttings. The exhibition is to be organized by Amber McMillan, Artist and CBA Instructor, and Alexander Campos, CBA’s Executive Director.
This exhibition, featuring current members of CBA’s artistic community, will focus on how the art of cutting: pochoir (stenciling), relief printing, paper cutting, and other related techniques are used to convey content, form, text, and image. Artworks featured in this exhibition will represent a broad range of book and related arts, including but not limited to books, prints, woodblocks, linocuts, rubber stamps, sculpture, mixed-media installation, film and video, and performance art. Approximately thirty works will be chosen for display in the Center for Book Art’s auxiliary gallery space. Artist members of the Center for Book Arts are encouraged to submit works to be selected by the show’s curator, and the selections will be augmented by works by non-member artists to enhance the scope of the exhibition.

Deadline for receipt of entry forms and images: Monday, April 26, 2010
