You'll receive an email reminder one hour before the broadcast begins.

Great things keep arriving in the mail! Some of these things I've purchased; other things just arrive in a wave of mystery. I'm John Cutrone, Director of the Jaffe Center for Book Arts at Florida Atlantic University Libraries, accidental curator of the Jaffe Collection, and, by luck, your host for Book Arts 101... and here's the next installment of Book Arts 101 episodes in which I unpack new items for the Jaffe's permanent collection. It's Episode No. 41. Watch via Zoom Webinar or live dangerously and watch the Facebook Live simulcast (that option is always a game of chance)... or wait 'til later and catch the video that is posted after each broadcast at JCBA's Vimeo Channel (

COVID-19 Update

As FAU Libraries begins its complete reopening process this summer, the Jaffe Center for Book Arts is here to serve the FAU community through a hybrid model of on-site and technology-enhanced services to ensure safety while meeting the needs of FAU faculty and students. As of July 15, 2021, the Jaffe Center is open to on-site visitors by appointment only, Monday to Friday between the hours of 10 AM and 4 PM. To schedule an appointment, please call (561) 297-4189 or fill out the form at the bottom of this page. We are not currently scheduling in-person group tours. Wednesday Tours are suspended until further notice. In-person Real Mail Fridays socials are suspended until further notice, as well.

You may also use the form at the bottom of this page to schedule a virtual appointment, or to inquire about a virtual Book Arts Roadshow for your community group. We utilize Zoom for virtual appointments and all our virtual programming, which has developed into a bright and robust collection of virtual workshops, gallery talks, and weekly socials that attract people from around the world. We encourage you to join this new global JCBA community, which makes book arts neighbors of us all, no matter where we live. Visit our EVENTS and WORKSHOPS pages to take part.
