Historical Note:

Founded in 1972 by Terry Belanger at Columbia University, the Book Arts Press was originally a clearinghouse for programs concerned with the history of books and printing. After Belanger moved to UVA in 1992, the Book Arts Press followed him there, changing names to Rare Book School in 2000, while retaining the Book Arts Press name for publications.

RBS/BAP retains a collection of printing objects and holds courses, exhibitions, publications, public lectures, and most notably its five-day annual Rare Book School in Charlottesville, VA. [1]
