The essential focus of the collection is on artists' books and the broader topics of the Book Arts: letterpress printing, fine binding, handpapermaking and paper decoration.

Ad Perpetuam Memoriam

This site is dedicated to the man whose positive influence has affected so many. The JCBA wishes nothing more than to uphold the legacy of Arthur Jaffe both in the physical presence of this collection, as well its virtual presence online.  We will work to bring Arthur's vision to all who wish to share in it. Arthur may no longer be with us, but he is always present within the lives of those fortunate enough to have known him.  

(Arthur Jaffe, 1921-2015)
