We're a group of book artists based in the English-Welsh border region of the United Kingdom, an area known as the Marches. Formed in 2009, we get together every month to share knowledge, skills and information. We exhibit individually and together at numerous local and national events during the year, and aim to bring book arts and artist's books to a wider audience.


As we celebrate our tenth year, our group comprises makers at every level, from those just discovering the joys of book arts to professional artists renowned for their artist's books. We come from, and share our skills in, a variety of disciplines such as textiles, 3D, paper sculpture, calligraphy, graphic design and printmaking.


New members are always welcome, so if you're interested and inspired by book arts, why not come to a meeting? You don't have to have experience of making books to be a part of the group. Get in touch to find out more.
