Small Plates 2020

Join SFCB in congratulating the artists of this year's Small Plates Program!

The 2020 Editions were waylaid by the pandemic, but despite the closures, Zoom meetings, and assorted difficulties, the artists were all able to finish some glorious books. We at SFCB could not be prouder of them.

The 2020 Small Plates Artists:
Li Jiang / Lemoncheese Press :: publication title: Oakland Native: Life of a Coast Live Oak
Rebecca Kao :: publication title: The Red Thread
Meghan Pohlod :: publication title: In Remembrance

2020 Small Plates editions are available via our online store. Editions from previous years are also available.

If you missed the Release Party on March 19th, fret not: you can watch the recording here on our Vimeo page.


Each year San Francisco Center for the Book invites 3 artists to produce artist's books of a specific size (4 inches x 4 inches) in a limited edition of 50-100. SFCB provides space, equipment, technical support, and funds for materials to the artists. Since the program's inception in 2008, artists have produced 29 editions, all of which represent the immense creativity and hard work of the artists.
