Earlier this month, the CODEX Foundation announced a new and forthcoming publication focused on contemporary book arts called The CODEX Papers. According to the announcement posted by bookseller Gerald W. Cloud:
Our editorial brief is to publish papers that promote a clear understanding of the enormously complex and historically rich field of the book arts, including:
-Scholarly, bibliographical, and historical perspectives
-Research, reports, and critical articles on contemporary book arts
-On the future development of the codex
-Photo essays documenting studios, ateliers, and libraries
-Interviews and profiles
-Book and exhibition reviews and publishing perspectives
-Collecting contemporary book arts
-Letters to the editors, opinion, and travel
-Dispatches from the global perspective
With its biennial book fair and symposium, the California-based CODEX Foundation promotes the art of the book. The Foundation has also published two books, Book Art Object and Book Art Object 2, as well as a series of monographs. The CODEX Papers will be a welcome addition to its list of publications.
The inaugural issue will be published in the fall of 2018. Interested writers may submit proposals including title and subject to [email protected] by December 15, 2017. Copy deadline is February 1, 2018.
