Welcome to the New York Chapter of the Guild of Book Workers, founded in 1906! We are excited to uphold the tradition of supporting the wonderful community of all types of book and book-related arts in New York State.

Check out our Events & Blog pages for our latest offerings.

New:  Swap Meet!  September 29th, Saturday 11am-4pm Judith Ivry Studio – 25 East 4th Street, 5th Floor


There will be offerings from long time Guild members:  Nelly Balloffet, Jenny Hille, Susan Martin, and Cara SchlesingerTalas will bring an interesting selection of remnants and miscellany.  Pergamena will send some skins. 
Claire Maziarczyk will bring her paste papers. Claire will give a talk at 3pm. To pre-order special requests contact her at pastepaper@aol.com.
And we’ve been curious what Test Fabrics has to offer book conservators, so we’ve invited Normandy Klaas to bring samples and discuss their products.
If you have items you would like to bring to sell, let us know!  The more on offer, the better!
Don’t forget to place your paper order with Jenny Hille .She has 40 sheets of Dover and Edinburgh Barcham Green (watermarked 1976 and 1983) – color is sort of oatmeal/natural – very useful for  17th,18th and 19th c. endsheets. As well as some large sheets (28 x 38) of Fabriano Ingres in various colors – great for endsheets. Since it’s cumbersome to transport, she’d like to know ahead of the meet if anyone is interested.  Please email Jenny directly:  jenny.hille@gmail.com
Looking forward to seeing you all! Please Register however drop-ins are welcome!
