The New Jersey Book Arts Symposium is an annual daylong event, held on the first Friday in November, that presents contemporary work by living New Jersey book artists and considers issues of current relevance to practitioners within the field of the book arts, and to the cultural perception and definition of The Book. Besides its distinctive focus on New Jersey, the NJBAS also distinguishes itself by looking at work in all aspects of the book arts - the ongoing practice of traditional arts, such as typography, book-binding, paper-making, calligraphy, illustration and book-design, alongside the innovative production of "artists' books," "bookworks" or "book objects." As well as showcasing the work of contemporary artists, the NJBAS includes panel discussions and academic papers on the history of the book.
