We Are!

We are the San Francisco Center for the Book, a center of inspiration for the book arts world.  We are binders, printers and artists who come together to teach, learn, share and engage in the community through workshops, exhibitions and events.  

We approach our work with creativity, flexibility and a spirit of collaboration.  Our ongoing success relies on welcoming, engaging and supporting the people in our organization and community. Here what our community has to say about us...

I recognize the amount of time and effort needed to move to an online presence and commend everyone for their hard work and tenacity.  It was a lifeline for many during the pandemic and made this waiting time a little richer, a little more thoughtful, and a little more productive.  Thank you! -longtime student and community member
